Black and White Street Photography

Black and white are culturally considered as colors representing the two opposite poles of the color spectrum. Ironically, however, they are perhaps the most complementary colors we see around us – the most commonly used monochromatic colors in visual media, such as photographs, paintings, and videos.

For a significant segment of global population, black & white has greater meaning than many of us realize. Black and white creates for them a sense of nostalgia and romanticism, transporting them into a world where the ‘colorful’ meant an intelligent use of different shades of grays and whites.

Today we have some really cool black & white photographs captured on street or in public settings. Street photography itself is an art in its own right. Street photos can encapsulate the public life and our social mores in so many wonderful and forceful ways.

Check out the following black and white street photographs. And don’t forget to put in a good word for us on the social media alleys and streets you travel.
