#03 Colors seen through Gregory Halpern’s various lenses: A deep perspective

Magnum photographer Gregory Halpern provides us with incredible depth while inviting us to submerge in a dual world of brightness and darkness. Captured in an instant that prevails in form of strong yet somehow always beautiful images, Gregory’s photographs become a pathway of changing pallets where light is divine and color its most tangible form of expression. From Midwest America to sunny California, Gregory’s aesthetic and sensitive eye unveils human truths otherwise disguised by the American Culture.
