"LOVE IS WHY WE ARE HERE."
- Source Unknown
I've always been a big fan of black-and-white photography. Maybe because black-and-white photography cuts to the heart of an image. All the busyness of an image drops away to reveal the most poignant feelings and emotions.
In vintage styled photography I also think that it works exceptionally well and adds to that 'old world' atmosphere. It draws us into that part of our history where things were imagined to be romantic and dizzying and our emotions and feelings seem to contain much more depth...more love...more intensity.
It's also a little arty and mysterious. Maybe that's why I love this vintage style of black-and-white photography.
How about you? What are your thoughts?
