Publisher's Description
For her series Monochrome, Danish photographer Trine Søndergaard (*1972) created portraits of individual people—not, as usual, in black and white or color, but in one color alone. This color scheme is perpetuated in the hand-painted frames surrounding the pictures.

Each of the portraits is unique in its chromacity, has its own special tonality. Unlike other, conventional portraits, the viewer learns nothing from these pictures about the names or identities of the people being depicted; they remain anonymous. Sometimes shown from behind or sometimes in profile, the subjects are never seen from the front: they do not look directly at the viewer and seem to be lost in thought. Søndergaard is primarily interested in capturing a particular state of mind, an introspection reflected in small, subtle movements. In the process, she continually poses questions with respect to the notions of the individual and the universal.
