(Curiosity) Real-Life L.A. Noir

Forensic detail of bullet holes in a car window – 1942

In 2000, boxes of photographs were discovered in a warehouse in Los Angeles. The pictures, which numbered in the thousands, were all taken in the line of duty by LAPD police officers between 1925 and the early 1970s. A selection of 80 are now on display at the city’s Lucie Foundation. This is the face of true noir, shot in glorious black and white.

My modern occult noir, FEAST OF SHADOWS, is now on sale.
