Schilte & PortieljeThe reasons for working in black and white are manifold. First of all, we want our work to be midway between photography and drawing or painting. We also value the contrast between advanced computer techniques and the slightly nostalgic feel of black and white images, enabling us to increase the distance between art and reality.
As our work deals with the fundamental aspects of human existence, be it man or woman, sexual identity is not our issue. Ambiguity, however, is very important for us, as it creates room for interpretation and identification.
