Black and White in Color
"Black and White in Color" is another project I've been working on for a long time. I look for or stumble on images that are quintessentially black and white but have just a whisper of color. "What?" you say, "Another project? When will this woman quit?" I confess. It's like being a sex addict or anything else. I am addicted to images. There, I said it, so here it is.
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
