Creating images in black and white (Or other monochrome) is the art of capturing and manipulating light and shadow. Historically, for many years, black and white prevailed even after color photography had been developed. Black and white continues to have adherents today. I believe black and white photography is a unique art form. While all photography must consider matters of composition, meaning and interpretation, and possible color relationships, black and white images are concerned additionally with the interplay of light and many gradations of shadow. Perhaps, color images capture light; black and white images capture shadows.
Many of these images will be included in the forthcoming book, Light and Shadow.
