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/

Sensations: Bath Landscape River Valley

Sensations: Bath Landscape River Valley

When I first took the series of photographs that would eventually become the Sensations series, I had originally intended the black and white photos to be little more than references for a series of graphite drawings. However, I have been busy working on my latest painting series, so I decided to post these photos anyway on both my blog and my main website. This particular series was taken using a simple, small white bath towel, an old washcloth I had in my bathroom. The power of color draws many an eye to it, but the grace, dignity, and intense beauty of many shades of gray has its’ own appeal. The rough texture of the fibers and weave of the cotton washcloth suddenly emerge from the light grey space that surrounds them. They create and overall feeling of movement, guiding your eye through the winding composition of the photograph. You can view the rest of this series on my website http://www.acevesart.com .
