Street, Local (B/W)
I was so immersed by the works of Andre Kertesz that only in late 08, I took a serious liking in B/W photography. There and then I realised the gritty realism of monochrome images seems to speak more clearly than colour ever could with its tones and textures. Their works and many other great masters shall remain a source of inspiration for me to acquire further knowledge.
Many think that street shooting means shooting pictures of people in public. Pictorially it’s not wrong, but a good street shot should carry a visual statement and meaning, in a way runs parallel to photojournalism.
The choice in politics isn't usually between black and white. It's between two horrible shades of gray”…..Lord Thorneycroft
When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!.....Ted Grant
The most important lens you have is your legs…..Ernst Haas
A good photograph is knowing where to stand…..Ansel Adams
