Black and white photography has withstood the test of time.
Usually, when it comes to technology, advancements render older technology obsolete. The computer has dominated the typewriter; the typewriter dominated the printing press.
Black and white photography, however, is an anomaly. Chemists and photographers started experimenting with color photography in the 1840s. By 1892, Gabriel Lippmann successfully produced color images that didn’t fade after exposure to light. In the next century, colored printing and photography kept evolving to the point where we can now identify and reproduce thousands of pigments.
Still, even in this day and age where flexo printers can seamlessly reproduce Smaragdine (a shade of emerald green) or Amaranth (a rose-red hue), black and white art is still incredibly popular.
There’s something special about the simplicity of black and white. At Personal-Prints, we have an entire collection dedicated to black and white personalized art for this reason.
