In black and white, a portrait takes on new dimension and connects with a rich history going back more than 180 years. Monochrome is not simply the absence of color, but rather a visual language unto itself. Executed well, it sets a portrait apart, lending a timeless elegance and simple sophistication.
Choosing black and white isn’t for everyone. It’s a strong stylistic choice that isn’t always a good fit. But in those times when it is the right choice, there is no substitute.
