Taking a closer look at the fundamentals of the green and wild life forms that exist around us.

With a photographer's eye, viewing the very things that we take for granted and easily dismiss as an abundant source of the natural world.

But could this be construed as disposable?This book does not shy away from the hard realities of, or attempt to glamorise, the climate discussion.

It modulates the voices, pensive, concerned, engaged or ignoring, from which is created the colours within a silent world of nature.

The Colour of Silence is about mindfulness and a clear-focused look at life on Earth, contemplating the curious truth about nature. This widely respected photographer artist, Clare Newton uses her intriguing and unusual photographs to explore the wonders of nature. "Art has a vital role to play in our sense of well-being through immersion in the natural world by enhancing our awareness of the diversity of life that abounds there."The perception of the superiority of one life form over another, and in particular of humanity over the remainder of the natural world, may well have contributed in no small way to the environmental predicament that confronts us today. Alongside Newton's images, runs another narrative: Could there be a different way of perceiving nature and our human place within it with fresh eyes, untainted by past preconceptions?

Can her unassuming photographer's eye help to show life as it actually is, not as we might imagine or desire it to be?Kate Humble BBC Wildlife and Science Presenter says'A beautiful & thought provoking book.'
