A fine set of disturbing photo portraits comes from Karen Jerzyk.
They have a nicely Gothic origin, too:
I cleaned out and gutted a room in my old scary basement and started to do portraits (mostly self portraits) to pass the time until court, and sort of continued doing them after. It was sort of a blessing because I wouldn’t have forced myself to shoot those (which is way different than how I normally shoot) had I never gotten nabbed.
