There's no blue anywhere

"Why I shoot in Black and White?

Because reality, so called reality is 100% scale, three dimensions and color.

If you make a black and white photograph of reality you are gonna reduced into two dimensions, you are gonna reduce scale and convert it into black and white; that’s three steps away from so called reality.

Obviously color is just two steps away ‘cause you maintain the color of reality; so in this three abstractions, in this three steps a lot of drama emerges.

This is the alchemy, the mystery of black and white photography, is why charge is so highly, is why black and white photography continues to fascinate us, and continues to be a relevant issue."
