Black Friday Special! (I Promise I'm Not Going To Sell You Anything)

"There are no blacks in photographic prints."—Garry Winogrand.

In honor of Black Friday, I've decided to go black. Below, the first images in a series of photographic studies of common household items that happen to be completely or mostly black.

Without further ado (or any attempts at dark humor), here's my series of Photographs of Black. Most of the photos below should be self-explanatory...although a couple may need deciphering. So: The thing that looks like a tire is actually my dog's chew toy, and the thing below the fuzzy glove is a steak knife handle.

(Be sure to scroll all the way past the last picture in this set to see why the headline for this blog post is a lie.)

OK, so I lied. I'm going to try to sell you something.

If you like these photos and think they might look good as wall decoration, now's your chance to buy them mounted and ready to hang—and without my logo. Visit my "Black" gallery, hosted by Fine Arts America, and you can order each image individually...or the entire set...or any combination...from the comfort of your own keyboard.
