Ted Grant said that when you photograph people in color, you only photograph their clothes, but when you take pictures of people in black and white, you photograph their soul.
I believe this might be true in a lot of cases. There’s something to a black & white photograph or portrait that you simply cannot achieve in color. Let’s have a look at 40 black and white portraits. I hope you enjoy this post!
