There is something exceptionally powerful about Jason M. Peterson’s black and white photography. The Chicago-based photographer has honed his craft daily over the last 25 years, and the effort was undoubtedly worth it. Each one of his photos manages to capture the essence of the scene and tells a compelling story. While photography has been Peterson’s passion since the age of 13, it is only in the last 5 years that he started sharing his work with the public. Since then, he has already gained an unparalleled following of 1 million on his Instagram account.
Looking at Peterson's photography, it isn’t hard to understand why so many people appreciate it. He has a unique ability to play with shadows and angles to create accurate compositions and moods, whether he is shooting in nature or in an urban environment. As for his choice to focus mainly on black and white photography, he said, “I am trying to capture human emotion, make the viewer feel something. Black and white helps focus on that emotion.” Take a look at the highlights of Peterson’s evocative work.
