Black and white is a broad adjectival term used to describe a number of monochrome forms of visual arts. Most forms of visual technology start out in black and white, then slowly evolve into color as technology progresses.
Black and white as a description is also something of a misnomer, for in addition to black and white most of these media included varying shades of grey. Further, many prints, especially those produced earlier in the development of photography, were in sepia (mainly to provide archival stability), which gave a richer, more subtle shading than reproductions in plain black and white, although less so than color.
I've already posted this first volumen of black and white photography in my journal a few weeks ago. Then I did the same again with other 99 deviations creating thus the second volume. And it was after that last volume when several deviants suggested me to make some news articles out of the journals and that's why i find myself here submmitting this. I just think it is a great idea!
And as I previously alluded to, this is only the first volume, but I'll be submitting the second one in no time. And there'll be more than two volumes, that's for sure. It is my truest wish that you may find this features quite enjoyable!...
