Not only is the photo black & white, but there are several other references to these colors and the concept of opposites and contrast. The chess pieces are black and white. The clothes on the two men are black and white, and they match the colors of their chess pieces. There’s also a contrast between the two men — one young and one old. Not only that, but the older fellow is wearing the white, which is generally associated with age. Their hair is black and white, respectively.
