MONOVISION Black and White Photography from the Collection

21 July - August 30, 2020

Paradoxically, what is added by way of colour is often considered by many to take something away from the photographic image. Black and white photography is revered for its interpretive, timeless quality. Whilst coloured photography is descriptive, the narrowing of parameters offered by the black and white image requires greater engagement by the viewer.

In Monovision, black and white photographic landscapes through to portraiture, selected from the Collections at Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre, celebrate the monochromatic images to which we are perennially drawn.
