Occasionally and surprisingly infrequently an image works best as a Sepia Tone. A monochromatic view that makes a subject come alive. More often than not the technique is used as a simple way to ‘age’ a photograph and create a period look but Sepia Tones have so much more to offer.
Black and White removes much of the colourful distraction from a photograph – but also often gives the image a harder, starker more dramatic look. Sepia allows it to express itself in a monochromatic way that is neither colour nor just Black & White; it softens an image and gives it a timeless quality.
These Sepia Tones are part of The End of Days – The Last of the Omo Valley Tribes series.
