Strike a Pose-Vogue

Black & White trend is always in fashion. “Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet? In a bright yellow jacket? Probably not” Ann Demeulemeester has said, definitely true. The inventor of the now-iconic ‘little black dress’ and ‘little black jacket’ (which was the subject of a recent exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery), Coco Chanel was a famous lover of the colour. As well as white that also has its fans. White is simple, bright and positive. Those two together make the perfect and lovable combination that everyone has tried at least once. Black and white always look modern, whatever the word means! You don’t have to spend time worrying what accessories will coordinate this style.

The colors black and white have always been considered within many cultures. In western culture black and white symbolize good and evil, or light and dark. Yin and Yang together are depicting the total. In Chinese philosophy Yin and Yang describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected and interdependent in the natural world and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.

 

And here comes the black and white photography. At first, might seem like a strange romanticized anachronism but in fact is not at all. This kind of photography has persisted as an ultimate choice for many photographers engaged in photojournalism etc. There is a retro look in this kind of art.
