Portraits in B&W
23 June – 6 July 2017
People like watching photographs of other people; maybe because they can see parts of themselves in the photograph they are looking at. It is always interesting to watch the portraits of people completely unknown to you and be able to see something similar, something that reminds you of yourself. Emotions so well known are depicted and this creates a feeling of brotherhood. Everybody experiences the same emotions at one point or another in their lives. Emotions that are even more intense in black and white.
