The reason people find themselves still fascinated with black and white photographs in a world so enthusiastically built upon color is merely because these photographs are all about evoking emotions, building bridges, leaving on the deepest impressions.

Worlds apart but still holding on, Josh Dane and Yasmine find themselves trapped in a place where they do belong together.
