The art noir illustrations of Tim Soekkha

The inspiration for the series comes from hard-boiled crime fiction (a.o. Chandler, Hammett), the film noir genre and quotes found on the internet etc. combined with my own texts and interpretations. I try to construct an atmosphere of stills from non-existent movies where the texts/titles may give some lead to stories which the viewer can make up or think of by one self. ~Tim Soekkha I’m attracted to the noir genre because in my opinion it’s broad vague and personal, you know it when you see it. The enormous latitude gives me the freedom in this series to let it basically go anywhere (even absurd or surreal) I want as long as I create a something in the atmosphere which makes it recognizable as ‘noirish’. Also working mostly in black and white forces me to keep it simple.
