Street photographer Lee Clark reimagines the casino as film noir
“Tokyo pachinko parlors and Vegas casinos are surprisingly receptive to street photography. The bright lights and colors of the machines illuminate the players’ faces, revealing tired and dull expressions. The rooms are full of noise, smoke and vice, creating the sensation of time travel to an illicit past. I shot in 800 Ektar color film as well, but discovered that I loved the way the neon lights looked in black and white, like a seedy film noir.”
Lee Clark is an educator and film photographer based in Los Angeles, California.
