As the contemporary photographic world moves as if in fast forward, this series from Jack Savage is committed to the power of memory, and the haunting events of our shared cinematic past. The title ‘Definitive Ambiguities’ is as Hitchcockian as it implies. Studio lighting and models appear mysterious, dark, seductive yet subversive and street. The landscapes are also at once moody, menacing and mysterious.
After shooting in his studio, his process becomes very much Photoshop based, using his imagination to manipulate his very own ‘imagined noir future’, taking inspiration from as many cinematic and musical references from his rare record days.
