  Artist's Statement:
"Men are the ostensible heroes of most films noir. They are conventionally the protagonists, but there is seldom anything 'heroic' about them... The noir protagonist is alienated from a combustible, hostile world, driven by obsessions transcending morality and causality... The obsessive noir protagonist is drawn into a destiny he cannot escape; he is impelled toward his fate by exterior forces beyond his power and interior forces beyond his control." - Jeremy Butler....... Photographing my toys and trying to convey emotion through the use of light, shadow, grit and grain. A crime has been committed.
