Sriram Janak – Photography

Black & white…


               “Color is everything,

                                          black and white is more.    


                                                                    ~`~ Dorninie Rouse

                  “To see in color is a delight for the eye    

                          but to see in black and white is a      

                              delight for the soul.” 

~`~ Andri Cauldwell

                    “I’ve been forty years discovering that    


                                              the queen of all colors is black.”

                 “One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this:  

                  in black and white you suggest;    

                               in color you state  .     

                             Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty…          

                       absolute certainty.”                                 

                                          ~`~ Paul Outerbridge

               “Black and white are the colors of photography.


                 To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to


                        which mankind is forever subjected.”                                               

                                                                               ~`~  Robert Frank

                                               Black & white (photography) frees up the photographer to see the 
                                           World & recreate it in a fresh way, shifting the image from
                                                 “How it looked to” how it felt.”

                      Life is like a good B&W photograph,


                                              there ‘s black , there’s white &

                                                                                 lots of shades in between
