WHAT MAKES BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?
I personally love black and white; it suits any type of photography. Black and White images can be strongest and more powerful than in color, black and white captures better the emotion, & every facial expression. I think black and white images add mystery to the composition of the subject, almost just almost everything look great in mono.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO CREATE PHOTOGRAPHS?
When I am in a mood to take photographs I go for a walk and look at stuff, whatever, a face, gesture, just ordinary stuff and walk for hours around the city. When I process into black and white it’s because I feel that mono matches better than color with that photograph, sometimes it happens to be the other way around.
WHY IS BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY SO IMPORTANT TO OUR FUTURE IN THE ART WORLD?
There is something about looking at black and white photograph that color one doesn’t make you feel, you absorbed every detail of the photo, you can feel the photo, it makes you feel nostalgic, Black and white photos have a classy and exquisite feel about them. lasts over time.
