Do you tend to avoid black & white films? And, if so, do you also tend to shy away from b&w stills?

Actually, I just noticed that the picture was taken in 1928, so my apologies. Should've checked the date on it. Although, I'm not too big on the lighting in it. I liked most of the other black and white pictures in here more, because they had more shades of white and black to them.

To answer your original question, I like black and white movies and photos a lot. As for the imagery, however, I find black and white movies/photos more impressive when they have different shades of black and white.

Anzor Bukharsky. Bukhara Region. Uzbekistan. A 6 y.o is running on a mountain of cardboard and paper.

.

"Gypsies earn a portion of their living by collecting cardboard and paper waste and then selling it to the recycling facilities."

While there's very little information available on Bukharsky in English, he appears to be from Uzbekistan and works predominantly as a street photographer in the surrounding area. This is one of the few photographs I could find any details about.

Color photography existed before then, though.

In that case, I still feel like that photo would've looked better without snow.

Either Bar-Am really likes photographs that emphasize the lateral dimension, or I really like his use of lateral emphasis, because that's what these photos tend to focus on.

He really is remarkable. I love the play of light in the last two photos, the almost impressionist wash of color.

That gallery I just posted has a wealth of his work, all in high quality, if you'd like to see more. This was my last post of his stuff.
