Monochrome Work / by Diane Ngo

This past year, I fell in love with some black and white photographs taken by a fabulous friend and photographer, Carissa Graham. They were great black and white stills of her kids that displayed her amazing skills at using shadows and light. Her work inspired me to do a new series of not just pen & ink, but incorporating my love of the different hues of gray tones to replicate the shadows, light and movement.  Here are the first two in the monochrome series which I hope to complete by year end. Thank you Carissa for being an amazing inspiration through your vision, heart and passion! You can check out her work at http://carissagphotography.com/
