Black and white photography is a photographic aesthetic that I use as a personal choice, not for aesthetics per se, but simply because I love it. Simply because shooting in monochrome allows me to get images that mirror my view of the world, the things I think, the things I like, what my life experience has taught me. This choice allows me to represent in my photographs my reality of the world and the things in it.
The black and white aesthetics in my photography meets my yearnings and dreams in photography as a whole, including landscape photography such as this sequence of photos in this category I now present.
It allows me to reach an immense amount of rich details that these beautiful landscapes have, that nature gives us. Let me show you all the magic and beauty that nature contains.
Photographer Alan Ross, a full-time assistant to Ansel Adams for five years once said: “It’s very liberating to create one’s own version of reality instead of being held to the reality of what is actually in front of the lens.”
“We don’t make a photo with just a camera;
to the act of photographing we bring all the books we read,
the movies we saw, the music we listened to,
the people we love. “(Ansel Adams).
