From the late 1960s to today, David Bowie’s spark of creative genius has burned white hot, allowing him to build an impressive career and a highly unique body of work. He has the unmatched ability to successfully harness the best trends in music, art, photography and fashion and blend them together to form unique and ever changing performance personas with their own musical style and look. Each one of his characters seems to be an entirely different person offering an eager audience new musical and visual experiences. Most of us are familiar with albums like, The Man Who Sold The World, Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars, Heroes, Diamond Dogs and Young Americans.

This month’s Picture This! assignment was the “Power of B&W” and we were thrilled by the many and varied images we received. Clearly there is a love and appreciation of monochrome photography, and we saw images that ranged from portraits to abstracts to intense studies of line, form, and tonality. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of black and white is the ability to interpret the image through contrast and tonal manipulations (even constrained HDR) without verging into the kinds of tricks to which color seems more prone, all while maintaining a certain photographic “credibility.”
