Black and White

Even though I’ve always been fascinated by the beauty of black and white photographs, especially old family portraits stored in little boxes at my parents’ house, I still mostly shoot not only digital but also always in colour. It seems that I’m always searching for even more colourful and radiant things out there but once in a while, I would stumble over something that just doesn’t work in colour, for different reasons, or proofs to look better in black and white during the editing process, either on its own or as part of a larger series. Sometimes no colour is needed at all.
