The Back to Black project is an international project with which Photon joins the worldwide trend to revive interest in black and white, analogue and so-called hybrid photography, especially in the contemporary, creative use of old photographic techniques. In modern times, these are often associated with the use of contemporary technologies which expand the creative field of application and bring original solutions even in today's predominantly digital age. In terms of content, this research focuses on the presentation of different approaches by contemporary artists to a medium that was predicted to become extinct not so long ago.

Projekt Back To Black je zastavljen kot mednarodni projekt, v katerem se v Photonu priključujemo globalnemu trendu ponovnega oživljanja zanimanja za črno-belo, analogno in t. i. hibridno fotografijo ter predvsem za sodobno, kreativno uporabo starih fotografskih tehnik. Te se v sodobnem času velikokrat povezujejo z uporabo sodobnih tehnologij, kar širi kreativno področje uporabe in prinaša izvirne rešitve tudi za današnji, pretežno digitalni čas. V vsebinskem smislu gre za raziskavo, s katero želimo predstaviti različne pristope sodobnih avtorjev k mediju, ki so mu nedolgo nazaj napovedovali izumrtje.
