about


The catalogue of a major exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Color tells the fascinating story of color’s integration into American fine art photography and how its acceptance revolutionized the practice of art. I chose a photograph by Mark Cohen for the cover because of its classic composition and primary color palette. I also designed the display font which is based on geometric shapes and inspired by early color filters
