What does "black and white" mean to contemporary photographers in the digital age? Are the implications and meanings of black and white still central to photography’s unique nature as a visual medium?

Portraits, fashion, editorial, landscapes, documentary, conceptual – all of these genres, and others not named, are open for consideration. Prints should take whatever form they need to in order to represent the continuum of tones, including gray tone, warm tone, cool tone, sepia, or other monochromes that comprise your photographs.
