Mary Kosar, Artist Biography-Photography
My favorite type of photography is black & white.
Sometimes the scenery or nature may not have a lot of color in it, so I choose to take the picture in black & white which brings out the textures, contrasts, lighting, designs, and creates a dramatic mood. Then the “design of nature” becomes the star.
Other areas that I like to photograph are architectural, such as old trains and old barns. There is so much texture in old barn wood doors, rusty wheels, dilapidated and broken windows, and these are the photos that I love to take in Black & white. These also portray a lot of what has happened to the downfall of the train industry and local small farming.
Photography has allowed me to combine 3 things that I love-travel, nature and photography.
