Black & White Photography

by Janelle Tweed

“One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty...absolute certainty.” - Paul Outerbridge

Black and white photography has the incredible potential to give a photograph more depth and complexity that may have otherwise gotten lost in color. A black and white photograph is classic, nostalgic, romantic, and timeless. It takes on a bigger, more dramatic role in telling a story. 

Here are some black and white photographs from fPOE. Powerful images and beautiful use of lighting and composition!
