On Black and White Artistry
Black and white may be excluded
From the family of colours.
But the tints, tones & shades
Find a family of their own….
In the enigmatic monochrome
And the elegance they exude
Borders on sheer simplicity
And dares on the utter sophistication.
In a world of colours that we may see
Using tonal contrast creates drama
Using light to capture textures.
Form and shape makes a difference.
Devoid of distractions of colours
Evocative captures, quality of lighting
Shifts focus on the ethereal elements
And accentuates the light and shadows.
Black and white photography
Flatters in a timeless way
At times it elevates, the subjects beauty
Creating an enigmatic dimension.
Presenting my artwork above
Titled : Chakra (Wheel ) above that felt right to me…
Only in monochromatic elegance
Of Black & White shades and tones.
