The Lady from Shanghai 

The photo series 'The Lady from Shanghai' refers to the Orson Welles​ film from 1947 with the same title, starring Rita Hayworth.  The  photo's recreate the unconvential visual style of the Hollywood film noir genre, using low-key lighting and expressing a mixture of melancholy, alienation, gloom, disappointment, moral corruption, guilt and paranoia. The Lady from Shanghai series features the femme fatale (model: Zhao Qian), against the backdrop of dark, shady docks.
