Famous monochrome photographers
Famous monochrome photographers. Swiss black and white photographer Christian Vogt (pages 90-97) is a surrealist who uses his camera to create mysterious black and white pictures in which dreams and reality coexist. Yasuhiro Ihara (pages 98-105) came to the United States from his native Japan in 1969; he is a storyteller whose spare and elegant black and white images recall the great masters of Japanese black and white printmaking. John Banasiak worked as a part-time bartender while studying monochrome photography and his black and white pictures taken on the job combine the artlessness of the snapshot with a warm feeling for ordinary people.
