True Detective Imagery at Arcangel

The HBO series True Detective has become popular due to the powerful story line, the ambiguity of the characters, symbolism and of course the intriguing imagery.

“We’re looking at a dark tale, told across the poisoned wasteland of Louisiana, where we’re seeing broken characters working through personal moments of death, violence, lust, conflict, and tragedy,” says the creator Nic Pizzolatto.

Industrial plants, Americana suburbs, Mississippi swamps,…A mix of mysterious and bizarre imagery, supported by double exposure images, decaying atmospheres and surreal visions.

We’ve put a selection together highlighting some of the images in the Arcangel collection that explore these themes.

Take a look and transport yourself to Louisiana…even if it’s just just for a moment.
