We’re delighted to announce 39 remarkable photographers as the winners and finalists of the first-ever LensCulture Black & White Awards. These masters come from 21 countries on five continents, and they demonstrate in many ways the visceral power of black-and-white photography to engage our senses and emotions. Their images sear themselves into our consciousness and plant themselves in our visual memories.
The great documentary photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank once said “Black and white are the colors of photography”, and lots of people agree with that point of view. Our world exists in vibrant color, but in black and white we see and experience the very essence of our surroundings. These awards recognize photographers playing with this fundamental and dynamic relationships between light, dark and shadows across all kinds of photography — from street to fashion, portraits to news and current events, experimental to fine art.
