Monochrome Photoart is a joint venture of us two photographers: Victoria Knobloch and Jagdev Singh.

Art in its natural form provides a medium to make the reasoning mind silent and delve deep into the realms of child like innocence. The innocence which we have in sheer abundance as a child and we distance ourselves as we gain knowledge. Art thus gives us a medium to lead us into this natural state of silence and innocence we all are longing for. The state which is sheer joy and beyond comprehension, simply said a feeling so personal and rich, only to be relished!

Our work highlights the essence of human existence with the same loving eyes yet individually different. The pictures embrace the fields of vanishing cultures, ancient traditions and contemporary culture alike. Yet the human element is the continuous thread and we both are most fascinated by the little worlds of the ordinary people. There we are searching for moments of authenticity, where people do not feel observed and therefore are themselves - then they are most natural and beautiful.

Our photographs are touching encounters, always close to the people portrayed. Every picture is a testimony to a spontaneous interaction frozen as a moment, never ever to repeat itself in time. Furthermore our goal is to refer to what is good in the world. Our photographs are like an argument there. The images motivate and show the dignity, strength and enormous positive potential of mankind. They draw the attention to the beauty, the living force, the peaceful and respectful side of life. Through contemplation on our work one can feel the creative power within oneself.
