Red, Blue, White: Global Colours
Red, Blue, White features the work of 37 photographers from 24 countries, most of whom were born under flags invoked by our theme. One wonders, even in the most apolitical context, how these colours’ symbolic connotations insinuated themselves into the photographers’ work. And one wonders to what extent viewers in these countries – from the UK to Cuba to Liberia to Laos – view these images through a lens similarly coloured. This exhibition is the premier installment of Getty Image Gallery’s Reportage Collection, an archive of contemporary documentary photography from Getty Images staff and contributors. The images are topically, geographically and stylistically diverse, but all exemplify the in-depth storytelling for which Reportage is known.
Red, Blue, White: Global Colours was curated by Shawn Waldron and Jay Davies. Signed and numbered limited-edition prints are available exclusively through the Getty Images Gallery.
