Many things can be photographed, the great thing about Black and White is the light and the shadows give the image depth and feeling. The opportunities for textures, patterns and detail are endless, my feeling is that the world is in colour, but I see in Black and White. There is something special to me for still using film, it’s the following of the whole process from taking the image, to printing in the darkroom.
