For some inspiration I decided to look into quotes that may help with my essay.

“One sees differently with color photography than black-and-white… in short, visualization must be modified by the specific nature of the equipment and materials being used.” – Ansel Adams

This quote from Ansel Adams particularly stood out. It covers the topics of using colour in photography and how the use of colour is distracting, or has the potential to alter the overall narrative of the piece. As a black and white photographer I believe this quote sums up his practice perfectly. He allows the image to speak in black and white. He does not need to get his point across of natures beauty by using colour.
