In a recent installment of “The Art of the Personal Project”, the ongoing series by contributor and photography consultant Suzanne Sease, Suzanne and Jazzmine Beaulieu talk about her latest project “A Colourful Life”. Says Jazzmine, “I had seen some images from India’s Holi Festival and was incredibly inspired by the otherworldly effect that the application of this substance had on those who used it and immediately decided that I wanted to use it as an element in my work. A Colourful Life was born by my desire to use the powder as an incongruously playful environment for 65yr plus women.”
