Naples Italy | The City in Black and White

Naples Italy is a city rich with colorful street scenes and vibrant characters. However, the city shines the most when you view Naples photos in Black and White.

As we walked around Naples, Italy with its ubiquitous graffiti, awesome pizza and colorful characters, we realized that the city truly shows its soul when seen in black and white.

Unlike travelers who create wonderful souvenirs while photographing Venice and its famous canals, we didn’t recognize the true beauty of Naples until we wandered through its winding streets. Once we did, we found photo opportunities everywhere we looked.

We took numerous photos in Italy, but these are the photos that we love the most. In their simplicity, they show the true beauty of textural and luminescent Napoli – the real Italian city that stole our hearts.

Beautiful photos..! The people look mostly sad, I hope that's not the common state of mind of locals!

Naples is the one city in all of Italy that I really want to visit. Been to Rome a few times but never made it to Naples where I could stay for a few days. It was always when I was passing through the city to get to somewhere else.

Absolutely love these photos, especially the ones looking up The streets, such atmosphere to them. I love shooting in black and white, it simplifies it in many ways but that simplicity in colour allows us to see the details of character and expression. Naples is a great city too, full of life!

There's just something about Naples that spoke to us, especially through a black and white lens. So glad that you understand!
