While its birth was in cinema, film noir is a style that lends itself wonderfully to still photography. This call for entries is for any still photograph in the noir style, black and white or color, and any capture method or process.
Film noir is distinguished by a unique aesthetic of low-key, contrasty light, strong shadows, unexpected camera angles, bleak pessimism, and a lurking sense of danger.
As Roger Ebert describes the style: “Locations that reek of the night, of shadows, of alleys, of the back doors of fancy places, of apartment buildings with a high turnover rate, of taxi drivers and bartenders who have seen it all.”
The film noir aesthetic that was nurtured in German expressionism in the early 1900s, and reached its apex in American film making in the 20 years from the late 1930s through the 50s. Classic examples in American film noir include The Maltese Falcon, Key Largo, Double Indemnity,Strangers on a Train, The Postman Always Rings Twice, They Drive by Night, and hundreds of other “A” and “B” films of the era.
We are very pleased that Aline Smithson has agreed to jury “Photo Noir”. She will select 35 images for exhibition in the gallery, and another 40 images for exhibition in our online gallery. All 75 will be reproduced in the exhibition catalog.
|Submit up to five photographs for $30, $7 for each additional.
