This is my new photograph titled LAST STAND. It depicts a family about to be consumed by a horde of zombies. The star of the photo is A. Michael Baldwin from the classic Horror movie Phantasm (1979). The little girl is my niece Thea, who was also the baby in my photo SNAKE. The mom was played by Erica Kauffman. The other child victim was played by my daughter Sadie.

This is a recent project I photographed for Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine called PICKMAN’S MASTERPIECE. This sequence of images is based on a 1927 short story by H.P. Lovecraft called Pickman’s Model.  I was attracted to this project because of the character of Pickman – who in Lovecraft’s mythology is a brilliant but marginalized artist notorious for his horrifying artwork.  Due to the graphic and disturbing nature of his work, he is shunned by his fellow artists. Pickman is my patron saint. I focused on the moment in the story when Pickman brings his last willing patron into ..read more
