Creep Factor: A Collection of Dark and Spooky Photography

Photographers not only use their work to freeze moments of time, they often set a mood through the shots that they capture. No matter what direction they are aiming, their ability to compose just the right image to connect the viewer with that particular feeling is inspiring. When that aim comes down in the dark or spooky territories it is easy for the work to feel more contrived than anything else. This is why, when it's done well it can truly send shivers down your spine.

Today we bring you a collection we hope will do just that. With this look at dark and spooky photography, we've found artists that have done a wonderful job keeping their work fresh and poignant. At times, to a near terrifying degree. So enjoy the spine-tingling showcase we have prepared.

  1. Lovely collection :) Nice to see a post like this in Summer too, since most blogs tend to wait ’till Halloween with dark and spooky themed entries.

  2. OMG. Wish I hadn’t given in and skipped. To me the creepiest is the Clown Project is the creepiest. Dark, Destination Chaos are eye catching. Deadly Sorrow is stunning – the colour combination is too good.
