MONOCHROMERIFIC 2nd edition

MONOCHROMERIFIC 2nd edition

Photography was born black and white, and some photographers choose to continue this tradition, while working on evolving the visual aesthetics of this raw art form. From an artistic viewpoint – color depicts reality. Black and white is an interpretation of reality.
Try and describe the feelings black and white photography evokes and you will come up with words like classic, bold, raw and natural. Whether it’s  capturing the texture of an object or seeing the form, shading, pattern or tone, black and white photography will give you a grater appreciation for life little details. Black and white photography is an interpretation of the world around us in differences of light values. Black and white is one way of moving away reality to infuse your work with aesthetics and obtain a work that can be considered art.

All About Photo Awards 2021 – The Mind’s Eye

All About Photo Awards 2021 – The Mind’s Eye

Our 6th edition of the All About Photo Awards invites photographers from around the world to submit their best work for consideration. In reference to Henri Cartier-Bresson’s photo essay, The Mind’s Eye investigates the depth and thoughts behind each image.
“To take photographs means to recognize – simultaneously and within a fraction of a second – both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis”.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
