The Silent Ultimatum
This series is based around "an imagined future for Contemporary Photographic Film Noir". A Monochrome blend of Sci-fi - with more traditional noiristic concepts such as mystery, subterfuge, a troubled past, femme fatales and murderous plot lines. As an Adobe expert in Photoshop CC - it is during post processing - where my imagination can really come to the fore.This "Hitchcockian" series is all about Photomanipulation. Silhouettes, masks, and secret feminine identities feature prominently within the series. Subtle hints at criminological storylines are also prominent.
