Winter: A Study in Black & White

1.5.18.2

 

Winter B and W

Winter is the perfect time to celebrate the particular qualities of black and white, rendered here in a photograph and an ink drawing.

“Black and white creates a strange dreamscape that color never can.”
— Musician Jack Antonoff

Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.
— Photographer Robert Frank

“Color is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” – Photographer Kim Hunter

Black and white is abstract; color is not. Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world. — Photographer Joel Sternfeld

“Perhaps I am old-fashioned, but black and white films still hold an affectionate place in my heart; they have an incomparable mystique and mood.”― Actress Ginger Rogers
