Black & White Single Photo

Winners & Finalists Photo Contest

Photo by ©Emiliano Iatosti

Black and white is a different way of seeing the world.
It is often thought that black and white is a simple technique to manage in photography, but it is not.
Through black and white the photographer shows us his world in colours, playing with shades of gray, shadows and lights.
The greatest photographers have tried their hand at black and white photography and many of them have never abandoned this technique.

The Black and White Photo Contest has ended and we finally have the winners. Our judges chose the best 5 photographers. It was not an easy choice, the quality of the photos presented in this edition was very high. We are pleased to announce the winners of the Balck & White Photo Contest (Single Photo).

Congrats to all the photographers.

The Triangle

This photo was taken on the Tiber Island in Rome. There was an incredible light, and the bridge over the river created luminous geometries in which people passed through. A father with his daughter were caught one after another on their walk.

Alone

It was December 31, 2015 and I was in Santa Marinella, a charming seaside resort near Rome in Italy, when I came across this radio transmitting antenna and from there a flock of migratory birds that came and went with the bursting of some dissuading guns. the intersection of birds with the flock continually created architectural affinities with the same geometric structure.

Majestic Loneliness – alienation and beauty during Covid-19

This photo was taken in Palermo, Sicily (Italy) during the harsh lockdown in January. I feel that this photo sums up what the world has been living since the Covid-19 pandemic begun, detachment, loneliness, alienation, closure. Behind the man is the Teatro Massimo, the biggest in Italy, and one of the largest in Europe. Its doors are closed, no actors are playing. no singers are performing, nobody is walking through its doors. The gates of the Teatro Massimo might be shut but the lights stay on to give people hope and a vague sense of redemption.
The normally crowded piazza has never been so empty on a Saturday night and a lonely man, wearing a mask anxiously checks the news over and over to read always the same things over and over, always the same tragic numbers.
