A number of people responded very positively to Friday and Saturday’s Journals which featured lots of B&W photographs. I love B&W photography. When I first began photographing global poverty in India back in 2000, I shot actual B&W white film. Those were the days before digital photography changed forever the art of photography. I lugged thousands of rolls of B&E film all around the globe, carrying them in leaded pouches to protect them from harmful airport xray equipment. I always asked to have the films hand inspected. It wasn’t until I was forced to switch to a digital camera, that I began shooting in color. If I felt an image would be more powerful in B&W, I simply removed the color. The result looked good…but I knew it wasn’t as good as B&W film.
