“It’s not easy to explain,” says Photographer Francesco Nacchia; a colorblind shooter who has been interviewed here before. “I will make an example, when you look at a yellow flower, you know that flower is yellow because your mind recognizes that color and binds it to the flower, for me that instead is color-blind, when I look at a yellow flower I am never convinced that it really is, it could be green or orange, the same thing for all the other colors, I see the colors but I’m not sure that they are really the same.”
Francesco is living proof that color doesn’t need to be one of the biggest and best parts of a photo simply because he doesn’t see it. In fact, he’s more about working with shades and tones in a photo.
