Nightmares Fear Factory, located in Niagara Falls Canada, has been on the cutting edge of sheer fright for over 30 years. Often imitated but never duplicated, NIGHTMARES is the longest running and scariest haunted house in North America, possibly the world. Here’s a collection of photographs, capturing the terror of people as they walk through the Nightmares Fear Factory haunted house. Hilarious!

Aerial photographer Jason Hawkes has a set of 3D photographs of sites around UK. You’ll need 3D glasses to view. ” I normally fly in a Eurocopter AS355 which is a five seater machine. I sit in the back wearing a harness and we usually take off the doors before flight. I shoot on Nikon D3X and D3S using lenses from 14mm up to 300mm. (3D) Rigs on helicopters are a nightmare, especially as I might use three different types of helicopters in a week. In the end I found with a little trial and error its just as easy to shoot with a single camera as long as you get the timings spot on. Once you have the images you just use some standard Anaglyph software to integrate the shots and you end up with these stereoscopic images. When viewed with chromatically opposite lenses you perceive the images as having three dimensions.”

Inspiring series by professional photographer Julian Calverley based in the United Kingdom. I love how Julian obscures some parts of the landscape to bring the eye of the observer to where he wants them to look. Each character and the landscape fit with each other.

Pseudo Documentation, is a series of large-scale photographs depicting grandiose installations in fantasy exhibition spaces. DiMichele creates this work by first building scale models of exhibition spaces, and producing original artworks in drawing, painting and sculpture mediums, which are sited in the spaces and then photographed to create the final works. The Pseudo Documentation photographs are inspired by DiMichele’s background with photography, installation art, abstract forms and passion for monumental museum and gallery architecture combined to create this photographic series of work.
