We particularly appreciate the use of black and white in contemporary photography projects when the photographer chooses to shoot in black and white not for the sake of it or to make their images timeless, but because the absence of color fits the story in the pictures or contributes to a certain visual style. Today we’re happy to share with you 10 such projects of all those shot in black and white that we featured on FotoRoom in 2017 (also take a look at our 10 absolute favorites and the 10 best projects that premiered on FotoFirst).
