Black and white 2016

A juried international photography exhibition

May 5–31, 2016



At the dawn of photography black and white was the only available way of capturing photographic images. The technological constraint had a profound impact on the early development of the medium as photographers had to adapt to the specific means of black and white photographic depiction. Today, however, black and white is a creative choice, and understanding that choice is an important aspect of interpreting and appreciating these works. The emergence and development of colour photography has not made black and white obsolete, and it is exciting to see how contemporary photographers keep turning to the shades of grey, and how they find renewing and reinterpreting the rich tradition of black and white photography appealing for their twenty-first century creative pursuits.
