There's something sublime about black and white photography. The contrast of light and dark. The absence of color. Just the bones of the scene are present. And it offers an insight into the subject that color photography, for the most part, simply, cannot offer.
Black and white photography, unfortunately only has a market for those who wish to buy prints. Ad agencies, magazines, etc. don't generally want black and white photos. They prefer color, so there isn't a huge market for them. But that doesn't stop me from making them. Why? Because I like black and white photography.
