Black and White Photographs

Black and White Photographs are back in vogue. Although black and white photography has always had its own special appeal, the popularity of this art form seemed for many years to be in decline.

The examples below are for illustration. In case any are out of stock, please go directly to our Black and White Photography Gallery.

Digital technology, including print-on-demand, has made color printing much more affordable, providing customers with a vast selection of high quality prints and posters in vibrant color.

Simultaneously, digital photography has accelerated the demise of film and the traditional black and white darkroom, resulting in a steady drop in the supply of quality black and white photographs.

But digital cameras have also bred a new generation of keen photographers and a rejuvenation of interest in photography. Imaging software and more sophisticated digital cameras meanwhile are making it much easier to produce black and white images.

So, while digital photography was largely responsible for the demise of traditional black and white photography, paradoxically it's now the catalyst that's injecting new life into the medium.

Black & White Photos Take Top Honors
Results from the International Photography Awards in recent years show that black and white photography is not only gaining in popularity among photographers, but is also well received by competition judges.

In 2006 in the Nature Section of the Awards, black and white photographs won the following categories: Landscapes, Seasons, Sunset, Trees, Waterscapes, Wildlife - results I'm sure would have brought a smile to the face of that great master of black and white, Ansel Adams.
