Dedicated to black and white Photography

The Art of Black And White Photography.

We see and live in a world of colour. That’s how we’ve evolved, and it’s the world that we know and maybe that’s why people seem to gravitate to colour photography. Personally, I think black and white is timeless, but more than that, it transcends reality and transforms an image into a realm that isn’t abstraction and in some instances, isn’t reality either.

I use both digital and traditional black and white 5x4 large format film to make my photographs. Each photograph is then edited in Adobe Photoshop and prints are made through an Epson large Format pigment ink printer.
