Black & White: Group show

Overview

"I can get—for me—a far greater sense of ‘color' through a well-planned and executed black-and-white image than I have ever achieved with color photography," Ansel Adams wrote in 1967.

"For Adams, who could translate sunlight's blinding spectrum into binary code perhaps more acutely than anyone before or since, there was an "infinite scale of values" in monochrome. Color was mere reality, the lumpy world given for everyone to look at, before artists began the difficult and honorable job of trying to perfect it in shades of gray." says Richard B. Woodward, a New York City-based arts critic for the Smithsonian magazine.

 

In this group show, you will be able to see how three of our photographers have used grey palettes and have mastered lighting in different ways to capture the very essence of their subjects. The dazzling photographs of Jean-Michel Berts sublimate nature, while those of Nick Veasey and Jeff Robb use innovative processes such as X-rays and lenticulars to bring humans to light.
