Sahar Mohammadikoochi: Best Six Images


Vintage -Film Noir

The 1950s and 1960s are my favourite decades for simplicity of lifestyle, the hope people had after the war and also for the great art and music. In addition, by following the vintage photography from this period, I could feel the nostalgia. I wish I could live in the 1950s decade. For my project, I had the aim of creating dramatic and cinematic photographs in a Fim-Noir theme. I was trying to express the moody and more significantly dramatic feelings and moments which I created by hard lighting in black and white and low-key. My portraitures are more classical and every image can tell a story about its character. Shadows and highlights play an important role in this genre.

I paid attention to the clothing style, background, and face direction/expressions for my close-up portraits.
