Le Troisième Homme

Posted on Updated on

In early November our Photography class travelled to Paris to attend the 2013 “PARIS PHOTO” exhibition. Four days filled with images of all sorts, inspiration in many forms and one, very compelling assignment: to photograph a series of images inspired by the movie “The Third Man“. This 1949  motion picture, directed by Carol Reed and starring Orson Wells, was the first movie ever shot almost in its entirety on location. “The Third Man” is a classic “film noir” thriller shot in black and white and is famous for its lighting techniques which won Robert Krasker, its cinematographer,  an Oscar. Although the film was shot in Vienna we were given the assignment in Paris, as that city as well as London, show similar locations. So for your enjoyment, here is the series I call “Le Troisième Homme”.
