What makes black and white photography so important to you?
Black and white photography is important to me because it was black and white photographs that drew me into the world of photography in the first place and when I really got into it I learned a lot about photography in general just by working in black and white. It helped me see the importance of light and that of shadows and allowed me to express emotions and moods that I was feeling.
What inspires you to create photographs?
Many things inspire me to create photographs but these three aspects are at the top of the list. The first is to be able to get into the zone and be one with my camera and the environment that I find myself in. The second is the positive emotions I feel when I get something really good or learn something new. The third is simply the fact that I am able to do something I truly love and am passionate about doing.
Why is black and white photography so important to our future in the art world?
I think it’s important because it provides a different type of creativity and a different way in which to see the world. I think limitation is one good way to get and be creative so to produce an image that can communicate a message or a feeling in black and white will continue to be challenging and continue to lure people into working with it. I’m glad people still value and appreciate black and white photography today and I think it’ll continue to be a part of the art world in the future.
