Black + White

Black + White

We are surrounded by colour and the world is a more beautiful place as a result. So why do I like black and white photographs so much? I enjoy the constraint inherent in making photographs without relying on colour as a visual design element. We are attracted to colour to the point where it can stop us from seeing clearly. No such distraction in a black and white image. In my view, black and white images represent the essence of photography.

“Colour is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive.”- Elliot Erwitt
