Why did Gokhan Altintas choose black and white in his photography?
Black and white photography at one side timeless : it is sometimes difficult to determine at which time has been taken a black and white shot. Black and white photographs will therefore cross the ages more easily.
Black and white is ideal for highlighting the lines, patterns, textures, shapes, volumes and contrasts of the subject .
The absence of eye-catching colors allows focus the viewer’s attention on the stage , no colored element disturbs the reading of the image. It can also give a very strong image of a subject that is lacking in color.
It allows you to accentuate the dramatic side by using a strong contrast, Vignetting effects or by playing with specific tools. Our vision being in color, photographing in black and white comes down to interpret reality and transpose the image in an almost universe unreal, fantasized, dreamed … It allows us to move away from a simple representation of reality.
