Welcome to Galleria Chiaroscuro

This web site formally www.photocreation.co.uk is now dedicated to my passion for Black & White Photography and whilst I still photograph in colour for those with that preference you will not find many colour photos here. I am happy to send you examples by email if that is what you would like.

Chiaroscuro is an Italian term used to describe the dramatic effect of contrasting areas of light and dark in an artwork,
particularly paintings.

In photography it may be described as the effect of light and dark within the photograph even the effect of black and white,
highlights and shadows, whichever way you wish to look at it, it is as always with art and photography, purely subjective.

This is my interpretation of the original translation Chiar meaning Light and Oscuro meaning Dark.
