I have always been a fan of black and white photography, but there are instances where it makes or breaks a picture. The following collection of photos contains some amazing examples of black and white portrait photography. By taking out the color of a picture, it allows the viewer to concentrate on other aspects of the composition. Sometimes color can get in the way. These pictures would no doubt be less inspiring and beautiful if they had color. Enjoy this gorgeous showcase.
