a world without pictures is like coffee without cream and sugar, bitter
My photography started with making pictures (and printing them) in Monochrome (Black and White). For me this style of photography brings with it a reality and a way of seeing the world that is different to colour images.
Fujifilm cameras have made this much simpler by including within the camera the ability to make monochrome images using their own approximations of their films from the past. This is actually done ”in camera”.
