Aesthetics in white and black photography

I am always provoked by the multiple issues of aesthetics in photography, especially black and white photography.

My feeling says that there is no right or wrong in matters of aesthetics in photography. Each person has his own. In my case I feel that I have developed it over several years always working, always experimenting. Always trying something new, different.

What really exists is what looks beautiful in your eyes … the aesthetic that makes you happy … the one that provokes emotions in you and the other people who look at your photos …

For example, this beautiful landscape with this sky simply wonderful, with these leading lines both in the vegetation and the lines of the small coffee trees makes me like this photo very much.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
