What color is “the love”? What exactly does the color black stand for? Is black a color? What color combination is reflecting “vanity” ? I recently came across Eva Heller´s book ” Wie Farben wirken”,which examines the psychological effects and symbolisms of colors. Each color creates it´s own mental connection,and the combination of certain colors in a specific percentage can reflect a feeling or a symbol. This series is illustrating 10 color combinations out of 200 you can find in the book. (artist statement)

Missy Prince: I’m not sure, but here’s a theory: I am a fairly quiet person. Perhaps I seek out such scenes to match my surroundings with my inner state, to find some kind of stillness. When I go out to look for photos I’m also looking for mental space. Somehow I end up in places that serve that purpose.
