Beautiful Black and White Photos by Keith Dotson

Pin It

Keith Dotson is a prolific photographer from Nashville, TN, who has a passion for black and white photography. By portraying a subject in the extremes of black and white, Keith hopes to capture its emotional essence. “I’m drawn to black and white,” he says, “because I enjoy the drama and emotion, the texture and power that only black and white images can portray.” As the beauty of his work shows, commonplace objects can become dramatic masterpieces after their colors are stripped away.

    Oh, how very beautiful. It’s the small images in a big world that capture our imagination … not the big picture. These are exquisite and it warms my heart to see that these pictures also represent some of my modest endeavours in photography. Black and white is my very favourite. Thank you.

    Great pictures Keith. I’m with you on black and white but I can never decide why. I very much agree with your reasoning – it’s always so interesting that the addition of colour can reduce the impact of a photo. Not always of course but often!
