Color can bring a picture to life, but nothing maintains a classic feel more than monochromatic photography. Black and white falls into a timeless category and gives photos an authentic and dynamic element.

Black and white photos were the only option back in the day, but now a following for the once outdated photography has resurrected. We live in a world where over-stimulation of the senses occurs and sometimes it is nice to simplify and keep things original. Monochromatic photos can be taken for photo shoots, editorial pieces, personal photography or even art pieces. The result is a compilation of stunning photographs in a plethora of shades from gray to off-white.

Monochromatic photography can be masterful and bringing it back to basics is a clever and intriguing thought. Stats for 88 Monochromatic Photo Series Trending: Older & Buzzing
