Surreal Charleston: A Look at the Lowcountry in Black and White

By Mark A. Leon

Imagery captures a moment.  It is forever secured for generations to come.  Photography is the historian of modern day existence and critical to ensuring we respect our surroundings and remember our past.

We took some time around the Lowcountry to capture some of my most favorite places in black and white and a little noir.  Enjoy this visual tour of the Lowcountry as seen through the eyes of a black and white lens.
