Amanda Norman has a passion for Gothic horror photography who finds the unknown to be scary, but enticing. She tries to project her passion, thoughts and feelings into all of her photography.
Why Gothic Horror and Alternative Photography?
There’s something about Gothic horror and the old tales of vampires, ghosts, demon’s and poltergeists that scares me a lot. I think it’s the unknown element as you find yourself wondering if these creatures exist and if they do, I don’t want them anywhere near me. Why do people write about them in the first place if they don’t exist?
I remember as a child catching my first glimpse of Frankenstein’s monster on the old Universal Horror films stumbling through a creepy graveyard and it got my imagination going. I was hooked!
Then along came TV programs like The Addams Family and my favourite, The Munsters. In my teenage years, Hammer House of Horror scared the living daylights of me. Who remembers The House That Bled to Death?
Of course I have to mention my love of Hammer Horror and their vampire films that were based on literary classics from authors such as Bram Stoker and Sheridan Le Fanu.
I believe that there are things hidden that only a few of us will ever see or experience in our life times. The mundane amongst us will shrug that thought off immediately stating that it’s a lot of rubbish, but those of us who are open minded will at least question their existence. Take for example ghosts or spirits. I myself have experienced things that I don’t have an answer for and trust me, I am very skeptical.
