Project details


This simple one image project is an image I created of my old Leica M9 Monochrom. This beautiful German digital camera still uses a CCD sensor (as opposed to modern CMOS) without a Bayer Filter.

So What??

This camera only produces black and white images, not a bit of colour anywhere. Every pixel records pure greyscale. It has no autofocus, it uses manual aperture and focusing lenses, it is slow, it is deliberate, it is PHOTOGRAPHY.

Pure and simple in the moment, not rushed and entriely a tool for the creation of a gorgeous image.
