To begin this here, let me explain the weird name: I am really not the creative head in things like “find a good name for a blog” - that is for sure. This blog should and will be only about black-and-white photography but I do not want to name it like “Black-and-White Photography” because this would be tasteless, boring and totally unimaginative.
So I have chosen “Graphite & Kerosene”. It is related on materials which are not as colourful as the pictures will be later on: Graphite, a very dark, so heavy material and the kerosene which is absolutely achromatic and used as aviation fuel which is why I associate it with all light stuff.
In reference to the visual arrangement and balance, light means bright. So things which got a bright colour are, due our experiences, light. The same way with all dark-coloured things (dark means heavy).
I hope you understand a bit more about the name now and what this blog will be about.
