Reconstructing Nature, Blue Mitchell
The world is a colorful place. Despite this, photographers often chose to excise color from the world they capture. Artists working in black and white eliminate the complexities of color to accentuate form, composition, and lighting. Personalities and events are made more compelling and powerful. The world desaturated is in some ways made more vivid. For Grayscale, The Kiernan gallery seeks photographs of any subject matter that use and celebrate the vibrancy of monochrome.
Alternative processes, digital, and traditional, and toned images are all eligible.
