black and white photographs
When photographing places I try to isolate the usual into the unusual. With black and white the onlooker is forced to pause and look with a different perception, without the safety of colour, to guide the emotions.
Colour is our safety, it is the world we inhabit. We walk through it every day going about our business. We are so used to colour we rarely stop and look and take the time to realise how it affects our senses.
A moment stolen in time, but the right moment to capture what lies within. We all hide behind a mask, a public facade to make our journey safer. Behind the mask lies a prisoner hoping not to be exposed.
