Re: Joshua Hoffine

These photographs are wonderful. Thank you for introducing me to his work. I am definitely going to order one. At the moment I'm trying to decide between the creepy clown behind the clothesline, and the little girl on the bed with the creepy claws underneath it.

Re: Joshua Hoffine

The piece entitled "Death" is also lovely and has a Ligottian feel to it: a crazy looking old man with greenish-gray skin and long white hair, wearing striped trousers, a dirty tuxedo jacket and a top-hat, is walking a tightrope while holding a black umbrella aloft. The rope, on both sides, disappears behind flowing red velvet curtains: could this be the"Crimson Cabaret"? The shadow cast by the crazy man must be seen to be believed... very creepy.

I'm glad I'm not alone here: these photographs are wonderful; they really do look like somebody has attempted to recreate pictorially a Ligottian dreamscape.

PS. To Candy, please DO NOT accept the lollipops! I fear that it may be a trap!
