There is this specific and peculiar reason to produce a black and white photograph. The mood and essence of the capture remains intact since there is no external disturbances inside the photograph for you to move away from the poignant and looping silence within, here the same applies for a portrait. The unbearable silence and sensitive curiosity to know more on the lives of these portraits will haunt us forever, as we all know very less is said within a portrait and the rest all happens inside the mind of the onlooker. These pictures are typical evidence for such a mechanism to happen and haunt inside the curious minds of us.

All photos are linked and lead to the sources from which they were taken. Please feel free to explore further works of these photographers on their collections or their personal sites.
