DAY SIX of The Dirty Dozen, 12 Days of X-mas: Flatline Photography
Hey there! It’s day 666… err… day 6 of our holiday celebration, and I’ve been wondering… why is it that some of us are drawn to darkness? Why is it that you, dear reader, are visiting a horror blog for an X-mas celebration you know darn well has nothing to do with X-mas? The answer is simple: Horror fans cannot get enough horror.
Ah, yes, lovers of the macabre. We come in all walks of life, and our friends and family don’t always get it, do they? They don’t quite see the beauty we see in something like horror photography, for instance. A gruesome art form, horror photography is one of my favorite things to view online. Like today’s guest, Flatline Photography. I adore their work. (Visit them at https://www.facebook.com/FlatlinePhotographyInc)
As for WHY horror photography is a beautiful thing to me, here are a few quotes:
“Art should offend people because art should challenge people.” -Eriq La Salle
“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.” -Stephen King
“Art doesn’t have to be pretty. It has to be meaningful.” -Duane Hanson
