i used to play a video game called casper the ghost.

I love art and everything about it, but I must admit that I do not follow photography all that strongly. So excuse me if what I'm about to say invokes a thought of "you dont know what you're talking about." No, I don't really, but when I stumbled across these two photographers I got this kind of spooky eerie chill and I just love these photos. There's something about it that's totally intriguing...

Pamela Klaffke

She has pictures of, um, non-children too (I was going to say "real people" but then I realized that sounded bad... KIDS ARE REAL TOO. Yes, I know!) among other rad things (like "minitures" - those tiny plastic animal toys you potentially used to play with). There's this haunting innocence about these pictures. And the film she uses totally reminds me of growing up as a ninties kid and taking blurry photos on my purple film camera. Check out more of her amazing work here

Kate Benauer





I love these. There's that similar haunting mood to it and I find them SO intriguing. Like, "what's going on? What's happening? What's the story?" It's all so seemingly random, but that's what I find so intriguing. All her photographs are at night and, you know what they say (do they say?), night is when it all happens... I love its je-ne-sais-quoi. Check out more of this amazingness.

Just wanted to share!

PS I'm away atm. So spiratic, random posts are, well, for that reason.. Thanks for all the last comments - super interesting to read ! :) Will respond ASAP.

Oh I know what you mean. They have this eerie beauty about them. I have a thing for haunting photos. I'm in love with the ones with those masks. I've always wondered where to get those masks.

Such awesome photos. They almost seem more like a character study than a picture. Very inspiring artwork!
