Arthur Ransome: Complex Simplicity"The role of the photographer is to distill the complex scene in front of them to one of simplicity that recreates the vision and emotional experience.  Black and White photography removes the distraction of color if it is not an important part of the story being told.  In this presentation we will peek into the technical and emotional “toolboxes” available to the photographer to recreate vision and emotion in the images we create in our attempt to emphasize the story we want to tell"
