Natural Color-Key

Union Hardware, Harare

Instead of letting postprocessing-manipulation do the work, I trusted my eyes when waiting in a Harare hardware store – looking through car windows presented me with a unreal scenery that lasted long enough to lift the camera, un-cap the lens (which I wanted to protect against the omnipresent dust) and frame this image.


  1. All the reflections bring this photo to life. The red coveralls become a focus, but then we have already discussed the magic of the color red.

  2. Yes, the reflections do their magic here. But in all my photographic life this was the first time that I saw non-color and color coming together in such a perfect way.
