Black and White or Black and Blue, Yellow, Red or Green ?
Updated: Dec 29, 2021
The history of photography is made up of black and white images, there is no doubt.
The way we are used to looking at history, all the events of the last two centuries are influenced by these two colours: #blackandwhite.
All the emotions we feel looking at that #images are filtered by these two colours: everything is represented in grey and white scales.
What would have been the #historyofphotography if the images had been shot in black and yellow or black and green or blue or red?
Probably the emotions and reactions to events would have been different: think of the photos of the Grand Duke's assassination in Sarajevo, the October Revolution, the Nazi concentration camps...
This image, in these different colours, completely change our feeling.
I would be interested to know if anyone is making a series of images in black and a single colour.
Please let me know and leave a message, thanks.
