Film Noir

The dictionary explains Film Noir as: “Criminal Suspense with a sexual undertone”. How can I not be fascinated by this wonderful art full of highlights and deep shadows? To recreate a few images of this era a lot of planning was required, attention to detail paramount. A highlight was using Mr Wilbraham’s beautiful, elegant Citroen Light 15 as a prop. Even though we almost froze to death on both shoots, playing with light has never been this much fun!
