Why did you decide to make photos in black and white?
That is one of the most popular questions that I receive. The idea of creating all the photos in black and white was born together with the idea of the Tropical Boudoir photography. In spite of all the colorfulness and brightness of the seaside (especially in the Caribbean area, which includes Riviera Maya) it looks incredibly beautiful on the pictures, these qualities take a lot of attention while viewing the photos. I want to focus all the attention on the model, on the lines and curves of her body, on her emotions, her beauty, individuality and black and white help like nothing else to archive this specific effect. Thereby black and white photos come out more emotionally saturated and contain only two colors with many tonal combinations and high contrast.
The next reason for creating the photos in black and white is the increased artistry presented in every photo and the charisma created by two fundamentally different colors.
From the moment I discovered the world of photography, it was 15 years ago, black and white pictures have always attracted my special attention. They always seemed more magical and fascinating. This longtime love to black and white photos is another reason for creating this project in such a special style.
“I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Color is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” ― K. Hunter
