what is noir?

I’m not entirely sure what makes a photograph, beautiful. But the way my mind chooses to remember incidents, people and things are by way of dramatic snapshots, a frozen moment that pulsates through my brain, leaving what I imagine, what ultimately becomes an impression. Maybe that’s what good photographs are meant to convey, not to strive to be aesthetic, but simply to recreate the feeling of a memorable impression.

why noir? I photograph people, things and places around me. I upload them almost daily to this website. And I live in London. The title refers to the perversion of photography, in that you require darkness in order to capture light.
