Laura: Birmingham Noir

Laura from "Birmingham Noir" by David Rann

Believe it or not, this is one of my favourite ever photographs (that I’ve taken). In fact, it’s two photographs – the background was taken on the Birmingham canal towpath and the portrait of the wonderful Laura (NearMiss DiZaster) was shot in the studio.

What the two images have in common is that they were both taken on an iphone 5, edited on the same phone, and combined using the “Juxtaposer” app – again, on the iphone.

The resulting image was part of a series I called “Birmingham Noir” which has since been exhibited in Athens and Mexico. There’s something about Laura’s amazing eye contact on this that just makes it for me.
