From Bill Armstrong’s article discussing his series “Film Noir” for LensCulture:
“Film Noir” revisits the themes of the classic black-and-white films of the 1940s and 50s—but with the lush, saturated colors that are central to my work. The solitary figures in my images contemplate the unknown, a reference to the ethical and philosophical dilemmas laid bare in those stories. While the traditional film noir hero’s “code of honor” is clear, my images remain blurred and unresolved, hinting at the escalating uncertainties of the contemporary viewpoint.
