The Colour Journal is a collection of six volumes. The starting point of each is a colour: blue, red, yellow, green, white, and black.
Benjamin Grillon, artistic director, who has collaborated with brands such as Gucci, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton, wanted to bring to light forgotten archives, hidden or simply ignored stories, and reveal unpublished treasures.
In this first volume, blue has given rise to 15 unusual stories, such as that of a denim hunter in the American West, a private collection of Helmut Newton’s Polaroids, and a (blue) wedding dress that scandalized the United Kingdom.
Between travels and explorations to meet some of the people involved, the heroes of this first book, and meticulous research in libraries and other guardians of art history, The Colour Journal gives us a glimpse of what we no longer look at and questions our vision of the world and the way we observe it.
