I have gone back and forth through my life with color and black and white. We have some of the best in the world here that shoot color. Color is beautiful and for those who see in color, my hat's off to them.
I shoot black and white because of the expressiveness of what I can do with the materials. Black and white is a generous process that has many facets. It can take a weekend or a lifetime to see the variations possible with one image.
A good friend of mine says we are the caretakers of the images we create or capture. It is up to us to show that image with the respect they are due. This can only be done by the finest craftsmanship and diligence. This is what I love about black and white; this is why I choose it as my medium.
