This genre is renowned for work of great artistic merit. Monochrome, to give its correct description, (rather than black and white) maximises contrasts in shade and shadow, conveying qualities of atmosphere, emotion and nostalgia.

The authors of the works you will see here pay close attention to composition, lighting, perspective and context. For these reasons, the results are particularly eye-catching and evocative. In some, the introduction of a colour to a single item also provides a focal point. This is a particularly effective method of catching the viewer’s eye and imagination.

This collection of work is definitely the place to find a print with a timeless aura.
