“Our lives at times seem a study in contrast… love & hate, birth & death, right & wrong… everything seen in absolutes of black & white. Too often we are not aware that it is the shades of grey that add depth & meaning to the starkness of those extremes.” Ansel Adams
When I first began my pursuit of photography, I fell in love with color and how it plays on our emotions. We see in color everyday. Color is everywhere. To see in black and white, however, with all it’s various shades of grey, allows us to use our imagination and make our own interpretation. Lately, I have been re-exploring my creative side with black and white portraits. My goal has been to bring a depth to the subject that only shades of grey can bring. These portraits are my interpretation of each person using the black and white medium in photography.
