"Black and white keeps the essentials for me,
while colors distract. In my opinion it has a no- bler form. It's more subtle. It just keeps my view and my interest much longer. I love black and white in all other forms too, it isn't just in photography. My furniture is mostly grey tones or strictly white, also my kitchen stuff. My clothes are almost all black too. I just love it in any way. OK, my TV is in color!"
He is also shooting people and bands & portraits for musicians and other artists.
