Black + White

curated by Elizabeth Avedon

South x Southeast Gallery   /   Deadline: 01/06/20

Black and white photography still holds a place in my heart; it holds an incomparable mystique and mood. Actually film star Ginger Rogers said something like that, but I am of the same opinion. Canadian photojournalist Ted Grant said, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" I'm not sure that is an actual fact, but I like his point of view. I agree somewhat with Eliott Erwitt's statement, "Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive." I'm looking for entries – on all subject matter, real or illusive, unpredictable or expected, complicated or plain – simply in black + white.
