Childhood Fears

The experience of horror resides in this confrontation with uncertainty. Horror tells us that our belief in security is delusional, and that the monsters are all around us.

I LOVE this guys work. When I used to have aspirations of becoming a professional photographer back in high school I got the chance to be the apprentice to my teacher who was a pro photographer who taught on the side. Alas, my parents never could agree to it. Le sigh. ;)
