Visual inspiration: Dark and moody film noir-style street photographs captured by London-based photographer Rupert Vandervell.

Capturing photos with an authentic film noir-style atmosphere are often difficult to achieve, but London-based photographer Rupert Vandervell seems to get it right every time.

Last year, we shared his award-winning series Man On Earth, featuring stark street portraits, and now he’s back with another series titled Urbanites, a “continuing exploration of the city, its urban spaces and our relationship with it.”

View more of Rupert’s black and white work over on his website or Behance portfolio.
