The Mission

The photographer, Sean Upton-McLaughlin, currently works for the smartphone division of Huawei Technologies, the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Through the company’s innovation of monochrome-only camera lenses and sensors for smartphones, Sean has developed a deep interest in monochrome pictures, including portraits, landscapes, and street photography. He is determined to find out for himself exactly how far a normal consumer with no prior photography experience can take monochrome pictures with a smartphone, and will be documenting his best photos via this site.
