Super 16: Without Color

mosaic_bw

The first roll of film I shot at art college was black & white; it was my very first attempt to make art out of photography, unlike my usual snaps of friends and occasions. Seventeen years later and black & white images still hold a special place in my heart; they have an elegance and purity, without distracting color, that focuses your eye on shape and light and shadow. I remember my photography tutor telling me that to be a great photographer you had to master the art of black & white first, that those shades of gray had infinite possibilities. Looking at my Super 16 this week, I can see that he was right.

 

See you next week, friends! ~ Susannah
