Ted Grant once said, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul”. This couldn’t resonate more with the Black and White Photo Awards (B&WPA) 2023. This year's list of winners has just been unveiled with submissions of monochromatic imagery surpassing expectations. 

Open to photographers from across the globe, the B&WP announced the winners on August 19th which just so happened to be World Photography Day. A record breaking 1,700 photographers from 92 countries entered around 3,000 stunning images across five categories; architecture, street, portrait, fauna and flora and landscape.
