From Oliver Klink’s article on the production of black and white photography for Issue 3 of Light & Shadow:
Black and White (B&W) was once the only means we had to communicate photographically. It
was a very romantic medium, eternalized by the likes of Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Minor
White, Henri Cartier Bresson, Yousuf Karsh, Ansel Adams and many more. Today, even with the
dominance of color images, especially on social media, monochromatic photography is making a
strong resurgence. When properly composed, B&W photos look even more captivating and stunning
than their color equivalent, enabling the viewer to focus on the subject, emotion and timelessness
of the image.
