Making the audience face their worst fears, this eerie disaster photo series by photographer Marina Gadonneix explores all things dreadful. In the dramatic images, Gadonneix takes us on a trip to different worrisome locations and haunting situations that humanity has gone through.

In shots like 'Crime Scenes,' 'The House That Burns Everyday' and 'Playground Disorder,' Gadonneix photographs abandoned and sombre-looking police training schools, firefighter training centers and military bases. The photographer choses these places for her disaster photo series because they bear the marks of things having gone wrong -- we see numbered plaques laid out, burnt ashy soot and fires burning.

The series turns our worst nightmares into realities and shocks the audience from their daily life with its mundane rituals and comforting surroundings.
