Haunted Air: Halloween Photos 1875-1955

Posted in Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2011 by elgrayso

Happy Halloween! I thought I would celebrate by showing you some really awesome photography. Haunted Air is a brand new book (released in the last few days) of Halloween photos taken between 1875 and 1955. I don’t own this (yet!), so I can’t say too much about it, but I will say the photos I have seen immediately reminded me of the old school creepy masks found in some of Diane Arbus’ work. The book is appropriately introduced by none other than David Lynch.
