It was really strange to stumble across this black & white version of a recent Gregory Halpern photograph from his ongoing California project. I say strange because the photographs in that project are colour photographs, and somehow this one is not… The situation becomes stranger still when one considers that the photograph, as it was posted, is credited to Gregory Halpern (in the tags to the post), but looks nothing like the version he has published on his own site (see below).
The blog on which this mystery black & white version was posted seems to consist almost entirely of black & white images, which might suggest a strong preference at the very least. But if this image has been downloaded and converted to b/w, it can hardly be accredited to an artist who had nothing to do with its conversion, can it?
Something of a mystery…

Photograph © Gregory Halpern, from “California”.

Tumblr EXIF suggests the BW version is a scan. So maybe it was printed in BW in a book and scanned by the blogger?
