Fresh on Market: Elegant Monochromes
By EyeEm Team - 3 min read
The reduction to simple black and white tones makes any photo look sophisticated – even if there's some color left in the frame.
Each month, we present you with a selection of the photos our community has recently made available for licensing on EyeEm Market. From all the photos uploaded, I create selections that show you how community members are exploring different topics. This month, I’ve focussed on a current visual trend: Monochrome images. Some of these are taken inblack and white, others in such stripped-back colors that you could be forgiven for overlooking the color.
What unites them all is their visual effect: The reduction to simple tones makes these photos look quiet and elegant, no matter what the subject. This effect was deployed to great effect in the movieCoffee&Cigarettes, turning those two commodities into a feast for the eyes. Looking to employ it yourself?
