Shades of Grey: The Perfect Simplicity of Black and White

Shades of Grey: The Perfect Simplicity of Black and White

Though color has captivated both photographer and viewer over the years, black and white photography still continues to fascinate us. Sometimes it sets a sombre mood, sometimes it alarms us with gritty, unflinching realism, sometimes it evokes a sense of nostalgia, but it always reaches us in a way that is mysterious, unexplainable and beautiful. In this particular series minimally titled “Composition”, I wanted to use black and white photography to emphasize both the shape and graceful form of the object. The tension that is observed between the mesh like material and the wide, black, linear straps adds to the overall visual interest of the piece.
For the love of all pictures black and white, I have attached a link to this short post for you to view and aspire to in your artistic journey, whether you are a photographer or collector http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/06/09/beautiful-black-and-white-photography/
