Today I read a paragraph in “On Photography” by Susan Sontag that I want to share here. She explained why photographers want to prove their work as fine art in comparison with painting; Cartier-Bresson believed that

a division of territory took place between photography and painting, color belongs to painting.

… many photographer continue to prefer black-and-white images, which are felt to be more tactful, more decorous than color- or less voyeuristic and less sentimental or crudely lifelike.
