What makes black and white photography so important to you?
Black&White makes photos look special. I guess most of photographers of any kind will agree that what we’re trying to do with our work is makereality look more interesting than it really is.Black&White is great for that. It’s important for me because in spite of my fascination for colors that constitutes more than half of my work now, I still thinkb&w photographs are simply stronger.
What inspires you to create photographs?
Why is black and white photography so important to our future in the art world?
It is important and will continue to be so not only because photography has always been deeply rooted in black&white aesthetics, for a long time the only one there was before color entered the scene,but also because so many of us grew up and were inspired by looking at the work of giants of photography.Black&White is synonym for classic in most genres of photography, be that street, portraits, fashion or documentary.
