"If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave..."


In this photo noir project, I created a collection of dark, poetic images, that reflect the noir genre. Each image feels esthetically mysterious, and together they suggest a story.


When I moved to Los Angeles, I played with the idea of creating a photographic film noir project. Strangely enough, living in movieland demystified the whole process for a while. I guess I had to step back in order to fall in love again.


I have always had a fascination with fine crafted cinema. It is to me a visual feast and often a projection of inner feelings.

As a child I embraced soft, pastel colors, and joyful imagery. My early years were happy and carefree in bucolic surroundings.


Later in life, when living in urban areas, I discovered “film noir” which engendered maturity and complexity in the images I was drawn to. Currently I see the world in a darker and more poetic way, with stark contrasts, mystery and motion.
