This crossed my mind while reading J.M.G Le Cl├ęzio's The African, a potent little autobiography that has a lot of substance despite its extreme brevity. Peppered throughout the text are black and white photos the author provided. I could only wonder whether the force of them would be diminished had they been in color.

Black and white photos have always looked rather ghostly to me...

I have heard the older generation who grew up with black and white TV are more likely to have dreams in black and white.

Fascinating! I wonder whether that means the unconscious is responsible for one's recollection of color.

Memory just naturally seems to be perceived as monochrome.
