The world is a colorful place. Despite this, photographers often choose to excise color from the world they capture. Artists working in black and white eliminate the complexities of color to accentuate form, composition, and lighting. The world desaturated is in some ways made more vivid. For Grayscale, The Kiernan gallery seeks photographs of any subject matter that use and celebrate the vibrancy of monochrome.
Alternative processes, digital, traditional, and toned images are all eligible.
