Marshall Vernet’s photography has been influenced by his love for French cinema and early European black and white imagery.
His black and white photographs have a dark strength to them that combine the look of a charcoal drawing and a classic film noir.
He also traveled the world finding images and locations for Hollywood feature films and commercials. He worked very closely with Tony Scott as a location consultant on such films as “Déjà Vu” with Denzel Washington, “The Fan” with Robert De Niro and Wesley Snipes, “Enemy of the State” with Will Smith and Gene Hackman, and “Domino” with Keira Knightley and Mickey Rourke.
This experience combined with ten years as a commercial director himself has manifested into a collection of very striking and powerful black and white photographs which seem to have one foot in the world of classic photographic imagery and the other in a contemporary world of computerized stylings.
