This widely respected photographer artist, Clare Newton uses her intriguing and unusual photographs to explore the wonders of nature. In her words: "Art has a vital role to play in our sense of well-being by enhancing our awareness of the diversity of life that abounds there."
Alongside Newton’s images, runs a narrative: Could there be a different way of perceiving nature and can her unassuming photographer’s eye help to show life as it actually is, not as we might imagine or desire it to be?
This book does not shy away from the hard realities of, or attempt to glamorise, the climate discussion. It modulates the voices, pensive, concerned, engaged or ignoring to create the colours of silence. The Colour of Silence is about mindfulness and a clear-focused look at the curious truth about nature.
Clare Newton, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, has undertaken many public photographic projects. Her collections in are museums and public exhibitions across the UK.
