Harlem Photographer Black Madonna Portrait

Harlem Photographer Haitian Woman Black & White Photo

I vividly remember the year 1998 when I watched the movie "Belly" directed by music video director Hype Williams. The lighting, use of colours, angles, and artwork were all captivating.

I was particularly drawn to the black and white photos displayed in Tommy's crib. I immediately knew I had to learn how to create such images. I stumbled upon some photos years later and discovered that Thierry Le Goues was the photographer behind these beautiful images.

This discovery led me to embark on a journey to learn his techniques for getting strong blacks with texture and white highlights with lots of details.

With this knowledge, I was able to create my own version of the Black.
