According to Joshua – I am interested in the psychology of fear. We are born with certain inherent and instinctual fears, such as fear of the dark, fear of lurking danger and the fear of being eaten. As we grow older, these fears lose their intensity ans slowly shuffled away into our unconscious. Horror as an art form, draws its strength from the unconscious.
Horror photography is able to present these abstract forgotten fears in literal terms. I stage my photo shoots like small movies, with sets, costumes, elaborate props for machine and special effects make-up. Everything is acted out live in front of the camera. I use friends and family members, including my own daughter as actors and crew.
We have arranged a list of Joshua Hoffine’s shocking and awful horror photography.
