NOPA CFE: NOIR & Workshop questionaire

  • by

New NOPA Call for Entries is now live!  Gather and submit your entries for our next show: NOIR.

 “I know you like a book, ya little tramp. You’d sell your own mother for a piece of fudge. But you’re smart with it. Smart enough to know when to sell and when to sit tight. You’ve got a great big dollar sign there where most women have a heart.” –The Killing (1956)

Dangerous dames, hardboiled gents, stark black & white contrast, curling smoke, shadows and dark alleyways, these are the signature moves of a classic Noir moment. But don’t let that confine you, doll. Just because it’s black & white, does not make it Noir, and if it’s in color, it doesn’t mean it isn’t Noir. Submit your photos for the New Orleans Photo Alliance’s call for entries for “Noir”. Whether you’re taking a cue from the classic films of the 40’s and 50’s, or re-creating the tone in the present day, show us the dark, grainy, smoky, somewhat hopeless side, with a hint of sexual innuendo, if you please, darling.
