Joshua Hoffine is a photographer who seems to love reproducing fears (one of our favorite things here!), and on his website, he says:
I believe that the horror story is ultimatelyt concerned with the imminence and randomness of death, and the inplication that there is no certainty to existence. The experience of horror resides in this confrontation with uncertainty. Horror tells us that our belief in securty is delusional, and that the monsters are all around us.
He creates the photos by staging them like mini-movies complete with sets, costumes, make-up, props, and special effects, and he doesn’t composite his photos from Photoshop, but uses the tool to finely adjust the color and add detail.
The images are the kinds of things that scare(d) us all, and even have some things that we’ve covered before, such as the vision in the mirror. The picture above is one of my favorites.
