Full Colour by Will Sanders
The London-based photographer brightens up an otherwise dark world with his vibrant new photobook.
“The world has become a spectrum of grey. We drive silver cars. We wear black clothes. We paint our houses white. When did we all get so boring? When did we let self-expression take a back seat?” argues Will Sanders in Full Colour, his vibrant new photobook looking at the brighter side of life.
“Full Colour is about recognising the beauty in otherwise unnoticed moments and freezing them forever in the hope that other people will appreciate them,” Sanders says. “I’ve wanted to do a book for years but as time went on all my series kind of morphed into a giant series, so I found it harder and harder to imagine how to channel it into a book.”
The solution came via a friend, the photographer, designer and KesselsKramer employee Gijs Van Den Berg, who advised him about a year ago to make a book focussing simply on colour. Sanders loved the idea and paired up with designerVan Den Berg to make it, successfully raising the money to do so via Kickstarter.
