Suprachromacy is a new series of full-spectrum, macro photography, shot in Lanzarote by Marcus Wendt, creative director at digital art studio FIELD in London.

« For the Rays, to speak properly, are not coloured. In them, there is nothing else than a certain power and disposition to stir up a sensation of this or that colour. » – These, the words of Isaac Newton, form the basis and inspiration behind this stunning project.

Getting up, close and personal with the island’s stunning plant life, the images hope to answer the immortal question: is colour a property, or a sensation – a part of the object, or the spectator?

« For us, these alien colour spectra spark ideas about how we see colour, how much depth is locked up in the colour green, and whether colour is a property or a sensation, » says Marcus. « And also what plants might look like on planets under a different coloured sun. »
