Louisa, 2014

This monochrome treatment, and the wide screen format, were inspired by 1960's French feature films, with Francoise Dorleac and Catherine Deneuve.

An additional movie reference was to be found in an account of 1930's Hollywood studio photographer Ted Allen, who, in 1937, was working for Selznick International: "In my portraits I have a small area of pure white that allows the skin tones to be printed darker, and with definition."
