The difference between black-and-white film and digital pixels can be subtle these days, but sometimes it's impossible to miss. Over the past 20 years, Bill and Kathy Kostelec have explored this difference by capturing images of Spokane and other locations in black-and-white with antique large-format cameras.

"Everything has this sort of a muted feel compared to a modern digital shot taken of the same scene," says Bill. "And it's attractive, partly because of the difference."

Through a methodical and delicate process of light metering, manual camera controls, chemical baths and trial-and-error printing, Bill and Kathy preserve the classic quality of traditional film photography. Spend a day with them (or watch the video we made after we spent a day with them, at inlander.com), and you'll learn to appreciate the painstaking decision-making that went into many of history's most iconic images.
