The Way of Light by Kirsten Bruening

Someone once asked me, what makes a good black and white photograph for you? To me, good black and white photography means a perfect interplay of light and shadow, of contrasts, a symphony of different shades of gray. A good black and white photograph should captivate the viewer. It doesn’t matter if it’s a portrait, a landscape shot, or an architecture photo. Black and white photography is art and should be understood and considered as such. A good black and white photo is never just a photo, it is the expression of the photographer. His personal footprint in the world of photography.
