So I did Google image search for Tom Waits, and the results are striking:

Screenshot of the first page of Google image search for 'Tom
Waits'.  Almost all the pictures are black and white photographs; very
few are in color.

General opinion is overwhelmingly against the idea of color photographs of Tom Waits.

I tried to think who else might be like this. The only person I thought of was William Kennedy, but the effect wasn't nearly as pronounced. I'll sleep on it.

[ Craig Burley points out that William S. Burroughs also has this distinction. ]
