Crimson Line presents the new experimental work of Magnum photographer Trent Parke. Influenced by the ephemeral colours of dawn and dusk, the multitude of reds sparked his curiosity about the colour crimson.
Crimson is used in commercial products, harvested from the crushed and boiled bodies of the female scale insect, the Cochineal. A dye used primarily in cosmetics and food colouring.
Born in the Australian steel city of Newcastle, Trent Park explores a crimson landscape dominated by ship yards, chimneys, and the BHP steelworks.
