In PhotoAccess’ annual Members’ showcase, a diverse community of artists and photographers come together to explore the idea of the ‘wild blue yonder’ – evoking endless horizons, soaring escape and the joy of adventure into parts unknown.
Across the ages, blue has been used when visualising something from our imagination, out of reach or the divine. As a pigment, blue is extremely rare in nature, despite being found in the environment around us – from the tranquil light blue of sky to the melancholy deep blue of the ocean. Unlike certain reds, browns, and yellows, blue pigment cannot be created from materials within our grasp. Blue represents an entirely new world beyond our own.
Emerging from a period of restricted movement, these works explore beyond our immediate surrounds and dive into the ‘wild blue yonder’.
