Zayna: I completely agree that the b&w vs. colour image are two different stories. I’m not sure I would have been able to articulate that, but before I even read your blog I was looking at the two images and remarking on what a difference it makes to see an image in b&w, and then look at the same image in colour. It definitely adds a secondary story-line. And I think that you’re right about the positioning/and feeling that emanates from the two images. The colour not only seems more vibrant (maybe only due to colour?) but I think that it’s almost fluid. As if it could be just a “paused” moment in time; whereas the b&w image is “frozen” in time. On the other hand, the images are not the same either. So maybe it’s not just the colour that creates a different tone, it’s the actual arrangement of the image. The woman on the left holds two different instruments; this alone creates a completely different feel. In the top image it’s like she’s stabbing something with her tool, whereas the colour image she has laid her tool to rest. This alone creates a more relaxed image. Also, I feel like the b&w has more of a propagandistic feel, whereas the colour photo seems more snap-shot-esque. Just my opinion. But thanks for these images and a comparison between them! What a different colour can make!
