Capturing the soul - not just an image

Our Amazing Works

Taking beautiful pictures is a passionate form of art. But those cool pictures often get cooler when they are seen on black and white. We are somehow attracted to the art works of masters who devoted their entire life capturing those cool photos in celluloid film. Photography has come a long way since those days, but the appeal is still there to capture the beauty and joy of life in black and white. I am an avid fan of taking photos of people and their culture. And I must admit I love to see those cool pictures in black and white.  However, I definitely love color photos and here are some very colorful events that I have been fortunate enough to participate.

words from the master

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”

Let’s assume that all the cassettes of monochrome film Cartier-Bresson ever exposed had somehow been surreptitiously loaded with color film. I’d venture to say that about two thirds of his pictures would be ruined and the remainder unaffected, neither spoiled nor improved. And perhaps one in a thousand enhanced.
Color tends to corrupt photography and absolute color corrupts it absolutely. Consider the way color film usually renders blue sky, green foliage, lipstick red, and the kiddies’ playsuit. These are four simple words which must be whispered: color photography is vulgar.
