I can’t stop with the Black and whites at the moment. I think this is because they strip all of the emotions out that colour makes our minds trigger. A black and white photograph is about the raw essence of what the film has recorded. The eyes are for me the ultimate connector. You see who a person is.
This image was always going to be a colour edit but as I worked today I was thinking about the power of how an image can be changed & as Kaya is growing he is changing every minute. This image in black and white kind of stops time for me at this point in the summer.
I will never stop loving black and white. It’s where i feel at home. & it is somewhere that i can re-visit as Kaya grows up (and stops letting me photograph him)!
