African Wildlife in black and white (2009-2015) – Part 2

This is now the second (and for the time being final) lot of the black&white pictures. Again, they were taken on various occasions between 2009 and 2015, mostly in South Africa (Phinda, Ngala) and Tanzania.

African Wildlife in Black and White (2009-2015) – part 1


Some pictures are simply better in black and white. Colour can distract from shape, pattern, texture and composition or may not be particularly attractive to start with (e.g. when photographing rhinos, elephants or hippos). Thus, usually a small portion of my pictures gets converted into black and whites. I simply love the resulting ‘artsy’ and timeless look.
