Color blind photo contest

Color blind Photo Contest The inability to distinguish one or more chromatic colors, distinction of space by the edges of darkness and light Color plays an important role in how we perceive the world around us. So when you take that information away what do you get in return? Without color, other elements of the photograph take on a more distinct role in telling the story. Notice how lighting, contrast, and composition are much more important in monochromatic images.

Black & white photography is a timeless art; always relevant, always contemporary despite being so historically ancient. Our juror Matthew Gamber states, “There is something about how when you photograph something in black and white, it gets locked in that time frame where it just becomes obsolete as an everyday seeing experience.”

Whether you are a darkroom purist or a Photoshop crafter, show us your love for hue-less images. We want to see your best black and white or alternative process photographs. Pay tribute to the origins of photography.
