<p>If you&rsquo;ve been following Smashing Magazine for a while, you know that almost all posts from the Monday Inspiration series are pretty colorful and eye-catching. This post is an exception. Compared to colorful designs where catchy colors help the design to stand out, in black-and-white designs the ability to stand out depends only on its ability to communicate rather than on its appealing visual presentation.</p>

<p>Indeed, beautiful black and white photography doesn&rsquo;t attract with its play of colors. Here close attention to composition, lighting, perspective and the context it is shot in are important. Hence, before considering the photos presented below please prepare some patience and time. This post presents some <strong>truly excellent examples of beautiful black-and-white photography</strong>.</p>

<p>Notice: this post isn&rsquo;t supposed to showcase <em>the best</em> black-and-white-photos of world&rsquo;s best photographers; please see it as a <strong>modest attempt to inspire designers for experimenting with black and white</strong> instead of using a variety of vibrant colors all the time. Hopefully, everybody will find something interesting and unusual for herself or himself.</p></p>

<p>In her legendary photos Toni Frissell impresses with a strong trend toward surrealism or realism. The photo presented below, although in black and white, is both extremely sharp and clear. To achieve such level of clarity in black and white is extremely hard.</p>

<p>Alison&rsquo;s life in black and white photos.

However, in the process of documenting Alison&rsquo;s growth, I developed a passionate interest in human relationships and capturing intimate moments in the lives of family and friends.&rdquo;</p>
