Black and White Photo Awards 2023

In a celebration of monochromatic photography, the prestigious Black and White Photo Awards has revealed its 2023 winners.

This year's competition attracted a record-breaking number of entrants, nearly 1,700 across 92 countries, who submitted around 3,000 stunning photographs.

Judged by a panel of notable photographers to be the Absolute Winner was Patrice Quillard from France, whose picture of a gelada staring intensely at the camera (below) is both arresting and unnerving.
