Joshua Hoffine is an amazing horror photographer who, for the past 10 years, has been creating beautiful works of art that explore the complex nature of fear. If you stop by these parts very often then you have no doubt seen his work featured on here in the past. For those of you who haven’t — head over to The Art of Horror and prepare to be amazed. You’ll thank me later.
Hoffine is currently gearing up for his most ambitious horror photograph yet, “an epic zombie image”, called Last Stand. The project is so big that he has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise enough funds to build a set from scratch that he plans on covering in blood. While most of his photographs only use two characters, his latest project will feature over a dozen, and it will depict the very last moments of life as a family finally becomes overrun by zombies. Otherwise known as the “HOLY SHIT” moment.
To fully grasp and appreciate the amount of work and time Hoffine puts into each and every one of his photos, read what he has to say when it comes to post production work.
“99% of what you see in my photographs is captured in-camera. Me and my team of volunteers spend weeks constructing sets and perfecting make-up effects to make sure that virtually no post production work (i.e. Photoshop) is required.”
Take a look at some of his work below and for much more information be sure to head over to his kickstarter page where you can see a rough sketch of Last Stand.
