The best black and white photographs do not remind us that the image is void of color, but rather they allow us to color the image in any manor we see fit, if at all. This is why the black and white photos from Olivier Zahm's Purple Diary feel more like personal frozen memories than mere pictures from an exhibit.

The photographer's lens captures his subject with no sense of intrusion and in turn he allows us view scenes with ease that if photographed should feel somewhat intrusive. It's like reading someone's diary without the guilt. Stats for Black & White Peaktography Trending: Older & Warm
