The Art of Black & White

Posted in Local by thepoisonpen on May 24, 2010

Newcastle city centre has always been one of my most favourites places to photograph. The architecture is as grandiose as it is stunning. But interestingly the most beautiful parts of the city can also tend to be the most quiet (even on the weekends), so at the same time as photographing it’s incredible Georgian and Neoclassical buildings, it can also feel incredibly peaceful. A bit like imaging the more beautiful parts of London without the constant frenzied sway of passers-by. It’s another reason why when I return back home, I always feel like the North East of England is an under-cherished gem and also why it makes it a haven for the scale and impact that black and white photography can have. The subject matter should always be as dramatic as it’s medium you choose to use.
