There’s something timeless about a black and white image. It’s a less literal medium than colour of course, which means that it will date less quickly (it’s astonishing how technology and fashion can alter our expectations of colour images). What’s interesting is that I have to go out with the intention of shooting in black & white. I find it difficult to switch back and forth between colour and monochrome. This collection of black and white images is from around Northumberland, from the coast to the Cheviots down to Hadrian’s Wall in the south of the region.
