English photographer Rupert Vandervell’s Man On Earth series is a collection of brilliant noir-style street portraits.

These stark images were captured by UK-based photographer Rupert Vandervell, and form part of a project titled Man On Earth.

“These pictures are less about the environment they are taken in and more about the ‘human factor’ moving through it.

Captured against the ever-changing backdrop of the modern city, these photographs attempt to highlight the unique visual characteristics of the human form against the urban background.”

A photobook featuring the entire collection of noir-style photos will become available next month. For more info or more of Rupert’s work, visit his website.
