Joshua Hoffine is regarded as the father of modern Horror photography.. He began making Horror photographs in 2003, with his young daughters starring as models. His work exploded on the internet during the early years of social media, becoming one of the first viral photographers to gain a global audience. His widely shared images inspired other photographers to create their own Horror themed images, inciting a new subgenre of photography.
His Horror photographs have been featured in numerous publications around the world, including Rue Morgue, Fangoria, Horror Hound, Scream UK, Virus, Famous Monsters of Filmland, The Atlantic, Vice, Esquire, Washington Post, Mirror UK, Lamono, Exit, LoDown, Beautiful Bizarre, Suspense Magazine, HuffPost, BuzzFeeed, BBC, and ABC News.
In 2018 Dark Regions Press published a hardbound collection of his photographs entitled Joshua Hoffine Horror Photography. The comprehensive volume spans 13 years of work and includes rare behind-the-scenes photos and artist commentary. A signed and numbered Deluxe Limited Edition of the book was also released in leather with a dust jacket and black linen slipcase.
