Visual Intoxication


My eyes slowly drink in everything that surrounds me. The pictures, I find, to be most magnetic. All in black and white. This was not some frivolous surface set of photographs. There is always a seriousness in black and white that can not be achieved with color. It’s in the simplicity that the most complex themes come out.

    I love this idea that “there is always a seriousness in black and white that cannot be achieved with color”–it’s one of those things I recognized as true on some level, but didn’t really realize it until I read this. I wonder if this post is a response to Ryan Spencer Reed’s display in the Dawson gallery?

    Natalie,

    Yes, it is a response to Reed’s photographs.
