"Photographs in black and white represents for me something timeless - a moment of documentation, often at first glance can be difficult to set a date on. At the same time, they can express feelings to a degree that is simply not possible if the same image was in color. The black and white photo tradition represents purity along with the gray tones between these extremes, forcing the viewer to concentrate on the subject and the composition of the picture, and not be bewildered with "cheap tools" like the glorious red colors of a sunset. Black and white photos express both something raw and gritty - something simple and honest!" - Carsten Egevang
