Nature in Noir

There are few things that I find more soothing than the deep greens found in the woods, but nature’s beauty isn’t reliant on color- the shapes, textures, patterns and layers can be beautifully transformed through a monochromatic eye. By reducing a natural scene to shades of black and white, the shadows become more mysterious, the fog cools and chills, the leaves intertwine and form a web of abstract foliage. I’m becoming increasingly drawn to grayscale palettes, and they make me feel like I have access to an alternate universe that exists on the other side of color.
