The Island of the Colors Blind by Sanne de Wilde



During a trip in Micronesia, to the Pingelap and Pohnpei islands, Sanne De Wilde shot a colorless world. Indeed, after a natural catastrophe, only the king and some inhabitants staid alive. However, the king was affected by a rare illness called achromatopsia. Since he had a lot of children, he transmitted this characteristic to a large part of the population. Achromatopsia consists in a difficulty to distinguish colors. De Wilde explores this strange world by using shadows and infrared lights creating a surprising and poetic project.
