Black and white photo art has a very long history. Early in my career, black and white photography along with darkroom processing was my primary focus. In terms of decor and nature photography, I started to see it coming back into vogue in the early 2000s. A colleague, who has been photographing multi-million dollar homes for magazines for decades said that it was common to see interiors that have focussed on minimalism in terms of decor that featured big, bold graphic black and white images.
