Interestingly, in another forum there has been an almost collective vision in this series of the forced labor camps. The wrought iron archway that invites, even if somewhat menacingly, then the stark and abrupt lack of life in a place so thought out and planned for just that. One member likened the series to her interpretation of Hitchcock movies, which surprisingly to me and others was only her second ever foray into the world of film noir.
I am now waiting for the humidity to drop, and the air to clear so I can shoot night shots under a full moon. I am even given to the idea of using it as a backdrop to some steel wool photography or light painting. That shall have to wait for more rain. I would love some more feedback on this series. This is a new concept to me to work practically nothing into something. While I want to continue to explore the "dark side" of the noir genre, I also want to express the social aspects of why we so love to put great populations of certain classes into gated communities, thus locking away the reality of what goes on outside the gateway.
