No color, just essence

Question for you, can you imagine a world without color?
I am always trying to answer the same question, with one part of me manically obsessed with everything B&W – photos, movies, clothes, design….

B&W is a universal value, answer for many fashion styles, interior designs, esthetics and legendary movies.

If your subjects are eternal… they’ll survive.

Elliott Erwitt

Imagine absolute absence of color, with sharp and crisp shadows, in that bar having a drink with  The Man – Bogart himself, or having a wild ride with James Dean.

Sometimes in life, less is more so without color we get pure artistic essence striped from all other distraction an honest photo.

All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.

Elliott Erwitt

These photos were made spontaneously without planning and preparation while in pursuit of the warm spring sun.

  5. Is there such a thing as colorless?! Shades of greys, black and white are also colors.
    You look gorgeous!

  10. classic black and white, such an artistic move. you look great
    and I can see where your coming from its try “less is more so without color we get pure artistic essence striped from all other distraction an honest photo”
    I’m a artist and I only every draw in black and white (shading etc..). I feel when I add colour to any of my drawings it takes away from the work this post really made so much sense to me
    thanks for sharing x
