PHOTOGRAPHERS

CREATOR STATEMENT:

"From a young age I showed an intense passion for “stories” (especially the more disturbing and horrific ones) which motivates me to try and analyze the different ways of storytelling. I began with cinema and photography, and through self-teaching I have taken the first steps into the world of the analog image, followed by writing and studying the great classics."

CREATOR STATEMENT:

"I have been a horror fan since a very young age. My brother and I have been making movies since I was 13 years old. Been striving to keep creating art with my friends and as time went on we really honed in on the genre of horror...I just love the feeling of being scared. So far it has brought me to here."

CREATOR STATEMENT:

"I am best known for dark and bloody photography. Among being an artist of many mediums, including props, scifi helmets, and painting. Photography has always been my love. And having a love for the horror genre since I was a kid. It only made sense to meld the two together and see what came out of it. Using one on camera flash, low light, and natural light, I try to give the photos feelings that seems to bring them to life."

CREATOR STATEMENT:

"I'm a story teller. Whether I'm telling the story through photography, writing, or art I will always find that telling a story is my biggest passion. The essence of fear is also a fascination of mine. I do take pleasure in genres other than horror; however, the feeling of fear itself is thrilling. My goal is to portray a feeling within my photos, writing and art that will create unease or deep emotion for the audience."

"I absolutely love the creativity that is portrayed in horror films. I always try and bring some of that creativity into my photographs. I want my viewers to feel how I felt growing up with the exhilarating feeling of the adrenaline rush. It has always amazed me how a single image can unlock a feeling of emotion and make an individual feel something different, something so horrifying."

"In 2003 I bought my first digital camera (a 4 MPixels HP compact) and since 2009, with my first DSLR, I started delving into the world of (art) photography. In order to learn more about it, I chose the pragma.gr private school and was taught by Thanos Papadopoulos.

Having always been a fan since the day I can remember I want to express the same fear I once saw as a child and put that into my work for the world to see. Until the world knows horror."

CREATOR STATEMENT:

"I am a German-based photographer, writer, makeup artist, and mask creator. My art is inspired by horror, the one we experience in movies, books or even our dreams, comics and the fairy tales we loved when we were children. My goal is to express my feelings with the help of my camera, through storytelling and I always like to add a dark and melancholy touch. My masks, prosthetics and most of my costumes are all made by myself from sculpting and molding to painting. I am always looking for new inspiration and people who share my love for horror and the dark."
