Robert E Smith:Choosing from so many superb Black and white images is always challenging, and this month was especially demanding.

While some images clearly stood out, I wavered back and forth between them - but this one consistently spoke to me.
Simple, beautiful and powerful, it embodies what Black and White imagery can do when you strip away the distraction of colour and simply focus on what is there, saying so much with so little while asking questions which outstrip the sum of its parts.

Thank you.

Robert E Smith:I was really torn with this one, some may consider it something of a cliche shot, but for me it is a powerful image with a strong connection and that sense of timeless humanity that spans cultural divides with thousands of years of Human emotions etched into this face.
