It violates too many of the decencies and the great privacy of the battlefield. In the photograph of war I can in a way dominate you through control of black and white. I can take the mood down to something so terrible that you don’t realise the work is not in colour. It is colour in your heart but not in your eye. - Don Duncan

Black and white photography is a perfect lie. We must not let colour destroy this image. - Patrick Summerfield - [cited in: Creative Camera April 1970, p. 118]

One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty. - Paul Outerbridge - [Julia Scully, “Seeing pictures”, Modern Photography, Oct. 1976, p. 8]

First and foremost, make it an obvious picture of color! Rather than looking for rocks, leaves, trees, waterfalls, birds, flowers, fire hydrants, starfish, boats, orchards, or bridges, focus your energy and vision on red, blue, yellow, orange, green, or violet. Color first, content second! - Bryan Peterson - From the book: "Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography"

Black and white can show how something is. Color adds how it is, imbued with temperatures and humidities of experience. - Peter Schjeldahl
