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!)
