Black-White lead From its beginnings in 1839, photography evolved into a high-quality black and white image capture medium for 70 years, until the first colour photography processes were developed.

Because we perceive things in colour, black and white photos represent an abstraction of our surroundings.

Black and white images tend to emphasise tone, shape, contrast and texture that may not be so obvious in corresponding coloured photos.

The images below are a sample of DIG members' efforts in exploring the art of black and white photography.
