Black and white photography, Cubism
You may appreciate black and white photography for its ability to stand out without the artefacts of color. Black & white photographs are usually distinctive for their attention to details such as perspective, lighting, composition and of course context. It originally was the unique form of expression until color made its appearance in the mid-19th century. Black and white photography, also called monochrome photography, is not always composed of pure black & white tones; depending on the process it can contain different shades. Nowadays some photographers still continue to prefer black & white for its interpretation of reality, and not for its lower cost and classic photographic look as it use to be the case after the appearance of color.
