BEYNAC EN BLANC ET NOIR


The history of photography began with the silvery and dark Daguerreotype images of the late 19th century and for the next 80 years, printed images were predominantly in black and white. However, despite the proliferation of colour in print media and the internet, more photographers are reverting to black and white for the dramatic effects it brings to an image.

This originally colour photograph of the Beynac battlements has been "tweaked" to emphasize the strength of the stone walls protecting those inside from whatever may be lurking in the surrounding woods.
