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.
Madonna is an image that depicts Mary and Jesus with black or dark skin. The Black Madonna is a common sight in Catholic and Orthodox countries.
Donn Thompson, a New York Advertising Photographer, created the Harlem Black Madonna image.
