Introduction

Undertaking this assignment was a personal challenge: to tell a story where color took precedence, evolving from that foundation. I sought five images that conveyed dominant hues of the color spectrum and revealed deep, personal insights from my journey behind the lens. Like a prism, I aimed to transform a singular concept through my creative process into a layered amalgamation of valuable ideas and insights.
