Storytelling Atlas

Recently released book: Storytelling Atlas (by Suzanne Tesselaar) featuring an image I composed.

The visual spectacle Perfume (by Tom Tykwer) got me thinking about the use of colours throughout the running of the film. I composed a still frame of every 5 seconds of the film. The composition reads like a page from a book, looks like a magic carpet ride but actually tells you about the main character’s journey. From the darkness of his birth, the struggle for recognition through to the self-awareness of his death. The 2,5 hours film that constructed a story in my head is now more than one image (frame or photo) but is a flowing motion of colours and details represented by these frames.
