Humanity has always been fascinated with (and attracted to) the creatures of the night.

In 1995 Joshua Hoffine graduated from Kansas State University with a B. A. in English Literature but he soon decided to embark upon a totally different (and far more strange) road. He began his career in photography by studying with commercial photographer Nick Vedros and working as a photo assistant at Hallmark Cards.
