The Magic of Black and White by Kirsten Bruening

“Black and white is abstract,” the great photographer Joel Sternfeld once said. “Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world.” Black and white photographs let the viewer see the world from a different angle and see the beauty of the subject from a completely new light. Black and white photographs have their very own magic and, when viewed over a longer period of time, bring out new small details again and again. Close-up photography, especially flowers, leave room for fantasy and give the viewer the opportunity to see the world with their own colors.
