Couturier Gallery, "L.A. NOIR"

Couturier Gallery is pleased to present "L.A. NOIR: A City Reimagined," an exhibition of black and white inkjet prints mannered in the style of Noir, depicting famous architectural landmarks throughout Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles area, by photographer Ken Locker. 
Ken Locker, Los Angeles Theater Broadway

L.A. Noir is Ken Locker's study of contemporary Los Angeles conjured through the surrealistic and portentous lens of the "noir" movies and literature of the 1930's, 40's and 50's. The mood comes from taking away rather than adding. By shooting the scenes with neutral density filtering, removing the color digitally, and applying other manipulations, the images become a dreamlike dialogue between light and dark provoking the feeling of unforeseen menace lurking around the corner.

Locker has had a diverse career in photography, documentary films, television and digital media. Having studied at MIT's Center for Advanced Visual Studies, he continued his fine art work in New York, exhibiting in several group shows at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 1972, Johns Hopkins University, 1972, MIT, 1975, and Ferens Art Gallery, 1977. Additionally, he worked in fashion, editorial and portrait photography. Locker's work, as an independent photographer, appeared in many publications such as The Guardian, Hollywood Reporter, New York Times, and the Wrap.
