Who knows why we like what we like? For whatever reason - Ilford's Delta line of black and white films are what I find the most satisfying to shoot. In my early years with Delta I did not understand how to manage its contrast properties and found myself time and again unhappy with how it rendered what I had seen through the viewfinder.

But I didn't give up on it.

I saw Delta's potential to record my vision in a way no other film could and kept working with it. Today I feel I understand it better than any other black and white film - and understand how to communicate with it.

Though I consider myself primarily a color photographer, there are scenes we run across that absolutely beg to be recorded in monochrome. As with other mediums of creativity, we're partners - Delta and I. 100, 400 and even 3200 have become faithful companions in the difficult process of transferring what I see into what others can see.
