November 2014: Horror photographer Joshua Hoffine is a master at staging and photographing our worst nightmares. He makes photo-shoots like small movies, with sets, costumes, elaborate props, fog machines, and special effects make-up. Everything is acted out live in front of the camera. He uses friends and family members, including his own daughters, as actors and crew.
In November 2014 his prints will be sold in POLYESTER Gallery Amsterdam.
Joshua is a strong believer that the Horror story is ultimately concerned with the imminence and randomness of death, and the implication that there is no certainty to existence. 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.
