Disturbing Horror Photographs Bound to Give You Nightmares

Danielle Tunstall is a graphic designer and photographer that puts emphasis on horror. She sets out on each photo shoot not to get the person to look their best, but instead their most appalling. Her work ranges from murderous to straight up disturbing, and her fans love it!

If you think about all of those awful images that crept into your head and kept you up on those dark, eerily quiet nights, Danielle has probably made an image of exactly that. Are clowns your thing? Well there’s probably one in your closet that wants to kill you. A murdering girl with rabbits teeth? YUP! Fear not, in her own words, “My work is purely fiction based on reality.” To get the look she desires, she often shouts things along the lines of, “act like you want to f***ing kill me!” at her subjects. Her work has been featured on countless book covers and in several magazines.

In addition to her stylized makeup and wardrobe, Tunstall applies her graphic design background into the mix, creating an even more unique experience. I am actually feeling inspired for the first time in ages. My news feed is constantly flooded with perfect couples and perfectly lit models, sometimes it just takes something that gives you a nightmare. I had personally never heard of horror photography, but I’m glad I have now. You can find more of Tunstall's work over on her website.

Been a big fan of her work on flickr for a while now, happy to see her getting some recognition.

My mind is probably messed up, but this is not scary in any way for me lol!
It's more funny - but that said, the images (most of them) look ok!
