It’s a fact that colors give life to a picture — making it lively, beautiful, and eye-catching. But what if the picture is monochromatic? What do you feel when you look at a black-and-white picture? Does it make you feel that there’s a meaning behind it or do you take it for what it is?
French photographer Benoit Courti created a perfect example of bringing life to a black-and-white picture. He was a music composer before becoming a professional portrait photographer in 2010, specializing in dramatic and expressive image compositions.
On his black-and-white photography series called Deep Black, you can discover the meaning behind every image he took and feel the different emotions he’s trying to convey.
Feel free to check his website for more stunning images like these. You can also check his other photos on 500px and Behance.
