    Loove these! I really like colour a lot, but nothing beats a good and simple black and white picture!

    (oh PS, his name is Hedi Slimane, not Heidi!)

    So much good stuff in one post:> I’ll ned to check it more than twice.

    Nothing better than a beautiful, contrasted black and white photo.

    Everything look so iconic. Man, styles from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s have so much more style to the crazy things we see nowadays.

    Mae Lu, @ thereafterish.

    So many awesome photos, it is impossible for me to pick just one favorite. I am rather partial to the vintage photographs though.


  6. Brigitte says:

  8. Erin says:

    These are so lovely and varied. The whole selection is just perfect; thanks for sharing these today!

    Love these pics Kris! The top image is incredible and I also love the ballet dancers and the aeroplacnes. I’ve been desperately seeking the perfect B&W prints to make into canvases for my new flat but am SO indecisive that I just have bare walls and 10000 saved images on my desktop!


  10. excellent roundup…black and white is so inspiring..

    Hi – on my family photo set on flickr I have the following – “These are my personal ancestral photos, please do not use for any reason without permission. ”

    If you don’t mind, I’d like this photo removed from your blog. Thanks!
