the first time I had reason to try to explain why I liked black & white, in an attempt to come across as ‘artsy-fartsy-cool and evolved’, my response was – “with black & white one is not distracted by colour” – still holds true today, but there’s more, like detail in the shadows, separation; strong lines, silhouette; exposure, dynamic range, colouring in shades; history and jungle fever.
