Paul Simon once lamented that "everything looks worse in black and white". I beg to differ. I think that putting things into black and white often helps us to see things more clearly, and certainly lets us see ordinary things very differently.

These soccer game photos, for example, become all about grace in movement, contrasts and composition. The black and white medium turns what could be ordinary images into art.

My Norwegian grandfather and his brothers were soccer crazy and even started their own soccer club back in the beginnings of the last century.
I think my grandfather would be happy to know the mania has now been passed down through another generation.
