About the Book
Strangers, confusion, mystery, questions unanswered, isolated characters immersed in unspoken thoughts…
In photographer Grace Weston’s moody book, “Neo Noir”, staged miniature scenes hint at a plot told from many sides. The images are impressionistic, sometimes hard to discern, as if deep in a fog. Still suggesting narrative, the story is barely implied, with more questions than answers, and with a certain level of uneasiness. The work has a nostalgic look, some pieces conjuring up 1940’s film noir and pulp fiction books, or 1960’s spy movies. When not isolated, submerged in their own thoughts, the subjects are detached or opposed to one another. Who can be trusted?
All of these characters harbor secrets.
