I adore black and white photography. It is just so emotive and ageless. Yes, I think that is what I love the most about it, it defies time. It draws you in and allows you to paint the story. Colour it in any way that you see fit.
The above photograph was taken on my phone as my camera was (unusually) not at my side. It was low light and I just converted it to black and white. I could have sharpened it up in Photoshop, removed all the noise and made it clean and ‘right’ but actually with this photograph I didn’t want to do that. I like that it looks as though it could have been taken many years ago. What I like about this photograph is the subject and the moment in time.
