This image was created from a black and white photograph of Bryan Cramer and altered in Photoshop to remove all the gray tones.
This technique mimics creation of prints using lith film, a process I have explained before in detail. (So I won't bore regular readers with a recap.)
The technique is best on photographs that are very contrasty to begin with.
This photo was taken in direct window light which created harsh shadows which were a challenge to work with when making a standard print with full tonal range if you strive to show detail in the shadows.
