“Capturing in colors is photography, capturing in black and white is art,” says Joel Tjintjelaar. Looking at his magnificent portfolio, it’s easy to see what the Dutch photographer means…

Tjintjelaar removes color to unveil the true essence of objects, situations, sceneries, and people. Instead of using bright pigments to seduce viewers, he focuses on capturing emotion and people’s hearts.

It’s the difference between photography and art.”
