City Colors: 10/26/08
Zoran Milich is a photographer based in Manhattan. He's best known as a black and white photographer of urban scenes but he has a number of children's books all which feature bright and colorful photographs from an urban setting.
I have been a fan of urban photography for a while and now that Sean is taking up photography as a hobby he's also getting interested in how photography can represent human spaces. With this in mind, Sean picked out Milich's City Colors.
City Colors has of outdoor scenes, play grounds, doors, streets and so forth where a single color dominates. That color is then highlighted in the text. The final page brings all those colors together in one last photograph.
The three of us enjoyed this book so much that we read it probably twenty or thirty times before returning it to the library. I will keep my eyes out for his other children's books: The City ABC Book, City Signs, and City 123.
That book looks really cool! "

It is. It's much more artistic than so many of the books designed to teach children colors.
