V. Some people are working in digital. I think a lot of people are making digital prints, that’s for sure. Its Bill Brandt that made it very clear. He said it’s really the results that count. There are cycles of color popularity. You can see this easily with products such as home furnishings and clothing. For a while, hunter green or mauve will be the popular color, then the trend will shift. An interesting trend I have noticed recently is the use of Web color in television advertising.
Color trends can be used to add appeal to a site and can also be used to represent a period of time. You can take your site visitors back to the 60’s with avocado or fluorescent colors. Turquoise and yellow are reminiscent of the 50’s. Sepia tints denote times of long ago. One final thought though, good color choices are appealing outside of any trend.

Born in 1946 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, Evergon lives, teaches and works in Montri?? al. Dating back to his studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York in the early 1970s, he has consistently used photography as an artistic medium. He belongs to that generation of artists who transgressed traditional photography, allowing it to incorporate hand-made touches and staged fictions. Moreover, in line with the artistic tendencies of his time, his work investigates personal sexuality and social constructions of gender.
Having exhibited widely in North America in the 1970s, Evergon began showing internationally in the early 1980s. He received recognition in the late 1980s with his first retrospective, Evergon 1971-1988, at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Since the 1990s, Evergon has continued with two new bodies of work, Ramboys and Manscapes – Truckstops and Lovers Lanes. He is represented by Galerie Trois Points, Montri?? al, Galerie St-Laurent+Hill, Ottawa, S. P. I. N. Gallery, Toronto and Jack Shainman Gallery in New York
