Black and white photography is, at times, one of our favorite forms of photography. Without the colors in your face, you’re able to focus on other basics such as texture and tone. Monochromatic images appear timeless, seeing as that’s how the first photographs appeared. They may even potentially aid in battery life for your device if the picture is mainly black and your display is OLED.
In the wallpapers below I’d encourage you to check out the mountain range. Not only are mountains used in many default wallpapers but this black and white one is gorgeous with its detail. We also especially loved the dramatic shadows and reflections in the Ferris wheel picture.
In this gallery, we’ve collected 20 gorgeous black and white wallpapers we think you’ll love, all in HD and QHD quality.
Note that while we’re showing just a handful here, the rest of them can be found in a Google Photos album.
