Every nuance of black and white
As far back as she can remember, Fatma Almosa, from Abu Dhabi in the Arab Emirates, has been drawn to photography. The initial spark of passion for artistic photography came with her first Leica camera. First in colour, soon after in black and white.
By removing the distraction of colour, black and white puts the often overwhelming sensory input of our fast-paced world into a completely new light – re-focusing on textures, shapes and patterns. On the raw story to be told. And on the feelings that are revealed in a unique way without colours.
“Only Leica M-Cameras enable that special black-and-white tone in a photograph that reflects the beauty of the soul and feels timeless.”
The world is full of stories. Inspiration is everywhere. Fatma Almosa draws inspiration from whatever captures her eye, driving her to communicate thoughts and feelings in a universal language. Aperture, shutter speed and ISO are the tools to unmistakably express her personal view of the world. The same applies to her photographs in the deserts surrounding Abu Dhabi, which tell of culture, tradition and values, such as harmony and coexistence.
“The M11 Monochrom truly validates my love for black and white photography, particularly in combination with my beloved Noctilux lenses.”
