The Visual Impact of Black and White Photo Art
As a genre of fine art, black and white photography has a distinct character. The contrast breaks through the shades of gray, pulling you into the action, emotion, and texture of the scene depicted. In these prints, you experience a different world.
This is the secret power of our black and white prints, and the larger-than-life dramas that they narrate. By bracketing out so much of what we see in immediate perception, they can function as a time capsule, or a portal into some other reality. A triptych set of prints depicting a beach in black and white will transport you back in time; a black and white portrait print puts you right there next to the subject.
The Art of Emotion in Black and White Art
Our expert curators understand the artistry and power that black and white prints are invested with. For this reason, we are committed to producing the highest quality photo prints. Cheap glossy prints couldn't do justice to these powerful photographs.
That is why we all of our prints art produced on industry-leading photo paper using the newest and most innovative printing techniques. The unrivaled experts at our award-winning lab produce only the highest-quality fine art prints.
Black and White Photography Prints: The Perfect Complement to your Walls
If you're looking to upgrade your wall decor, framed black and white photo prints are a great place to start. One of the unsung virtues of a black and white photograph is that it will fit in with pretty much any decor imaginable. They are unbelievably adaptable, making themselves at home in pretty much any scenario imaginable. Whether you're a minimalist with bare, white walls, or whether your walls are bursting with color or stitched in by intricate wallpaper, framed black and white prints will transform your space.
Try an abstract architectural photograph in your bedroom, a monochrome movie star with 3-point lighting as part of your living room wall art, or a scenic triptych in your bathroom. These prints are moving and stunning in any environment.
Black and White Modern Art
Whether you're looking for portraits of stars like Audrey Hepburn or James Dean, or surrealist prints by Man Ray, the LUMAS curators have carefully assembled a world-class collection of photographic prints that will match any room. Shop for classics of vintage photography, or rare nude art photography.
Abstract art is close by in its origins and its aesthetic affect. Because we see in color, black and white photographs are, paradoxically, less "realistic" than either color photography or our natural vision. When we see in black and white, we are always already seeing something abstract. Abstract art photography is thus related as an art form.
These collections include countless abstract and modern photographic prints, and features a legendary cohort of stars like Sharon Stone, David Bowie, and Marlene Dietrich.
