“Noir” is French for “black”. “Film Noir” has many interpretations . For my photography, I create low key (darker) lighting that evokes mood and mystery, a dreamlike state, and underlying eroticism. Although I can shoot many different styles, I have always been inspired by the emotions created through noir photography. But no matter how dark the scene may be, the women in these images are the light. Sometimes veiled in mystery, they go about their lives protected by the dark, only letting us look unless they choose to invite us in.
