The Whaling Widow Series was Done by Photographer Caroline Knopf

The 'Whaling Widow' fashion series by photographer Caroline Knopf is a creepy assortment of photos centered around a sulking dark-haired woman. Many of these eerie shots feature fallen fish. In some shots they're served up on a dinner plate, while in others they lie strewn across the staircase. This is why the clever title 'Whaling Widow' is perfect for this series.

The model seen in these shots sports some black lace gowns (after all, wearing black is to be expected from a widow). She also sports red clingy dresses, floral print numbers and ruffled white gowns. What makes this series spooky (aside from the Addams Family style home it was shot in), is the model's blank expression. She seems almost like a ghost of a person, just going through the motions in these stylish shots. Stats for Creepy Widow Captures Trending: Older & Warm
