Faces From Around the World, Black & White Edition

I love shooting travel portraits, but many times my eye sees people in black & white–not color. On these occasions, I actually shoot the photos in black and white, rarely turning them back into color from RAW (nor turning color into black & white).

Below are some of my favorite B&W shots of faces I’ve shot in the past few years, along with the subjects’ countries of origin. Some people may find black & white shots depressing or boring, but I find that it brings out certain characteristics one wouldn’t otherwise see. There’s a definite beauty in limiting color. I hope you enjoy them!

(Oh yeah, and this is the first post after migrating the whole site to its new WordPress home.  There’s also a neat new gallery at the bottom that allows you to click, comment, and go through the photos one by one. Enjoy, but please forgive formatting issues!)

    • “Further, a capital is decided by a sovereign country itself, not by the location of foreign embassies.”Wrong. A country can say whatever it likes. No one is bound to respect it. That’s the point. If the government of Brazil declared that Milwalkee was it’s capital, the BBC is not obligated to glorify that fantasy. Same here.
