I love black and white photography and the potential it offers for personal expression. The word "chiaroscuro" is from the Italian words "chiaro", which means clear or light, and "oscuro", which means obscure or dark. Chiaroscuro refers to the arrangement of light and dark parts or elements without regard to color. This portfolio represents some of my attempts at chiaroscuro.
