Black and white photo prints are known to capture lighting, shadows, texture and contrast that might often go overlooked in a busier color print. PhotographyVox writes:
“Many fine art photographers prefer black and white images for their tendency to distance the subject matter from reality. Humans see the world in color, and a rendition of the world in monochrome makes us pause and look closely. Removing color from a picture helps the viewer to focus on a subject’s emotional state. Black and white portraiture lets the audience see the subject’s face and read his or her eyes without distraction.”
