Healing Hues: Navigating Grief Through a Blue Color Theory Photo Project - Nov 12, 2023

Updated: Jan 2

In the realm of healing through creativity, embarking on a color theory photo project serves as a therapeutic odyssey. This blog chronicles a deeply personal journey, utilizing a vibrant spectrum of colors drawn from both new and archived photos. Today, my focus is on the calming and serene world of blue.

Blue, with its tranquil hues reminiscent of the sky and the ocean, becomes a poignant choice for capturing the essence of serenity. Assembled from snapshots taken throughout the year, the color blue in this photo project emerges as a visual balm, offering moments of peace and solace amidst the storm of grief.

The act of curating a collection of blue-themed photographs becomes a form of emotional navigation. Each image, with its cool and calming tones, reflects not only the external world but also the internal landscape of the creator. Through the lens, grief transforms into a shared experience, and the beauty found in each shade of blue becomes a beacon of hope.

Blue, in all its manifestations, carries a therapeutic power that transcends the visual. It becomes a visual representation of the calm sought during times of turmoil. From azure skies to deep indigo waters, each photograph encapsulates a moment of respite, offering a sanctuary for the heart in times of sorrow.

As the color blue weaves through the photo project, I have discovered beauty in unexpected places. The gentle ripples on a serene lake, the clear blue sky after a storm, or the comforting embrace of a favorite sweater—all become symbols of the resilience and strength found in moments of calm.

Through the act of curating and reflecting on these images, I find solace, recognizing that beauty exists even in the shades of sorrow. It is a reminder that grief, like the color blue, is multifaceted, and healing is a journey that unfolds in its own time. As the project continues to unfold, each color becomes a brushstroke, painting a portrait of resilience and hope.
