20 Gritty Examples of Noir Photography

This collection from our “Noir” showcase challenge pays tribute to the old 1940’s and 1950’s style black and white films labeled “film noir”. Film Noir’s low-key black-and-white visual style was heavily influenced by German Expressionism, an artistic movement of the 1910s and 1920s. Please enjoy our selection below.

    My top three are by

    cool! I love the capture of the smoke in this — and I still would like to smoke after years of being a non-smoker

    ** james_drury
    this feels a bit HP Lovecraft wise. Noir for sure

    ** Jackxx001
    The stripes are positioned just right. well done

    The other shots add to this fine selection.

    And thanks for having me on board

    The advert showing a Lubitel Camera brought back lots of memories as I worked in the camera factory in Leningrad (Now St.Petersburgh ) and made hundreds of these cameras in 1964, They sold for about $20 and had an ulta sharp lens!
