Film Noir by Jared DiMartine

The IT industry is often portrayed as weary soul-destroying labour in a matrix peopled with ungrateful or at least uncaring cubicle drones.  How appropriate, then, that it should give rise to one Jared DiMartine, who has put his time in purgatory to good use—funding a photography hobby and small business that we hope yields great future dividends.  Below are excerpts from Mr. DiMartine’s exhibition “Film Noir“, presented at the Kiehl’s Boutique in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, last February.
