After awesome “Heritage” and “National Parks” apps, Fotopedia is out with another iOS title. Called “Memory of Colors”, the application presents the “amazing colors of humankind’s last treasures,” taking viewers on a photographic journey through disappearing cultures around the world while sharing a “message of peace, tolerance, and respect.”
The application covers humanity’s fragile diversity in over 18 countries, from Algeria to Yemen, and it was created by respected photographer Jaime Ocampo-Rangel. It took him over 12 years to complete the task, requiring tons of research, logistics and diplomacy along the way. The project was first exhibited at UNESCO’s headquarters in 2010.
Included in Memory of Colors are more than 1,300 high-resolution portraits, wallpapers for the iPhone and iPad, slideshows and information on each image. The app comes with “standard for Fotopedia” easy navigation, ability to share stuff on social media, shuffle mode and so on. All this could be yours for an introductory price of just 99 cents. Well worth it, me thinks.
