Humanity has always been fascinated with (and attracted to) the creatures of the night. Every culture has legions of deadly monsters that lurk in the dark corners waiting for an unfortunate victim to wander too close.

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. In 2003 Hoffine started creating horror themed images and his work soon exploded across the Internet.
