Very often people ask me do I photograph in black and white only.
Every time I hear this question I remember Ted Grant’s words: “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls! “
Every time I make a photo I know already it will be black and white or colourful. Why? Because black and white works so differently than color does. Subjects that look great in black and white often don't look good in color. It's for the same reason that vivid color pictures look boring once desaturated. Images in the photo-historical cannon were made for one palette or another.
