Who said you can't get an adrenaline rush from black and white photographs? You can get all the dosage you need from San Francisco transplant Bram De Martelaere. He's in deep with the skate scene but he doesn't stay just within the confines of the skate park.
De Martelaere prefers shooting in black and white and we can't blame him. He's developed his own process that mixes the excitement of skate photography and the emotion and calmness of street and architecture photography. You'd have to take a closer look at his photographs to appreciate the mastery and details that go in each one. He ties up all the visual elements in his photographs with a sense of confidence and grace that can only come from experience, talent, and skill combined.

Often we are told to read between the lines, but can we read between photographs? Denver-based photographer Carol Golemboski enchants us with her love for black and white film as she paints the world's unspoken metaphors.
People love competitions and Lomographers are no different. But more than a search for standout photographs, the TEN AND ONE Annual Competition celebrated the community's shared love for photography and its power to create enduring stories. This list by no means set a conclusive standard on what makes an image good or not. But nonetheless, we're proud to introduce the photographs that took the top spot in the Trial and Error category.
In this series photographer and analogue enthusiast Simeon Smith talks about the use of minimalism in photography and how he applied this method to his own work. In this article he uses the Voigtlander Bessa L camera and a roll of Black and White film.
