Joshua Hoffine’s photos takes us to an almost forgotten world of childhood fears. It’s a gorgeous, macabre and absolutely horrifying world. One we would prefer to close the door on and lock it for all eternity, and yet…we can’t keep our eye from the keyhole to get a glimpse of the other side.
Do you remeber your childhood nightmares? The Belladonnas most certainly do and take a sort of gruesome delight in reliving them through Hoffine’s lens. If you are prepared to take the journey back in time and do the same we recommend that you visit his website for the full series. And lots of other intriguing pieces in the same vein, of course!
We also recommend you to take a look at his blog for fantastic behind-the-scene photos and lots of interesting comments on the nature of fear.
