Louisville Noir

"Louisville Noir" is a photographic portrait series by Tom LeGoff, an MFA student at the University of Louisville, of the many characters residing in the city of Louisville. The photos are classical portraiture that comment on the subject's personality by using simple props or locations. Then, in the tradition started by Julia Margaret Cameron, the subjects become characters in Tom's fictional narrative "Louisville Noir." A viewer who looks at these portraits of people from Louisville will begin to give iconic noir titles to them: the femme fatale, the enforcer, the politician, the matriarch, the mastermind, the informant, the detective, etc.
