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.
Alright, this is the second selection of black and white photography, and this is also the volume of features that moved some of my watchers to suggest me that I should post my two latest journals in the form of news articles; maybe this is more inspirational, or maybe it's just that more deviants took a look at this one... I don't know! All I know is that I like the first volume as much as this second one. And it is my desire that you like this one, too.
As I previously stated, in the first place I didn't intend to make of this a news article (I didn't even thought about it then), it all just started only as selections of black and white features in my journal; so, even when this article is under the category "Art News > Photography" you'll find that among these 99 deviations there are 4 that aren't photos (sorry about it)... but hey! they're in black and white!
I intend to do this again, so there'll be a third volume. I haven't done it yet -not even in my journal- so I really don't know when I'll be submitting it here, but I hope it's going to be soon. Very soon...
