Richard McGrew's Black and White Photography

About

Hi. I am lucky to live on one of the beautiful walking courts in Old Louisville, one of the largest historical preservation districts in the USA. I’m also within walking distance of historic Downtown Louisville. I find that living my 21st century life in a 19th and early 20th century setting is best expressed through the medium of black and white photography.

    I fell in love with all your images and Louisville, what a lovely place filled with so much beauty. I look forward to keeping up with your photography.

      Thank you so much, Melissa Ann! It is a wonderful place although a lot of locals unfortunately don’t realize what a treasure we have. Those of us who do feel like custodians responsible for preserving what is here for future generations.

    Your conversions are so beautifully rendered (Old Louisville #20, for example) that they remind me of very fine steel engravings. Your portraits (Silvia) are soft and smooth like silk … as in the best of analogue photography. Beautiful work.

      Thanks, George! Your comments are so kind that I hardly know what to say. You really made my day!
