The 365-day black & white project evolved from a seven-day challenge on Facebook to make a black and white image every day for seven days, with no people and no explanation of the photo. I enjoyed doing this so much I decided to keep going for a year. I started to experiment with contrast and seeing how far I could push an image, and I became engrossed in the work.
I posted a black and white photo every day in 2018 on my instagram account. These images were mainly of the little things, the mundane things I saw every day. A house, a pole, a door, something on the ground. But sometimes they were the things that stood out and screamed “look at me”.
Sometimes I processed the photos normally, but sometimes I liked to experiment to create a high contrast image that documented the subject in a different light, from a different perspective. These were over-processed images that were nothing like reality, and they weren’t intended to be.
I had a lot of fun making these images.
My wrap-up blog post on this project is here. Thank you to everyone who supported and encouraged me throughout the year. I made it!
