Despite the advances of today’s technology, when televisions and monitors can display thousands of colors, there are still many people who can’t resist the charm of black and white images, either in their pure state, or in beautiful shades of gray. Why? Is it the memory of a bygone past? Or is there another reason?

It highlights forms in a way that is aesthetically pleasing, and for this reason, many photographers continue to use this form of expression.
