57 Striking Black & White Photography Series

From Angelina Jolie Editorials to Kate Moss Ads

— April 17, 2009 — Fashion
It’s no wonder that black and white film has been used to capture even famous faces known for their beauty like Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss; this technique is infamous for its ability to create contrast and enhance drama.

Every photographer I know will tell you that black and white portraits or fashion stories stand out and have that spell of attraction and stunning effect. This method of seduction is precisely why so many great photographers continue to capture their work in black and white—even Brad Pitt, as he captured Angelina Jolie for W Magazine last year.

Click through the black and white fashion photography, art photography and portrait photography collections below to judge the striking effect of contrast for yourself.
