As Halloween quickly approaches, the Gary Baseman Nightmares of Halloween exhibit is opening at the KK Gallery in Los Angeles. This will be the first exhibit in the newly opening gallery. Baseman's exhibit shows photos from his collection of vintage photos of masked people. The exhibit will include nine photos that were enlarged and then painted over. Eventually, Baseman would like to create a book from his collection of masked captures, which he acquired mainly at flea markets and off of eBay.
These photos are very eerie. Each one takes on that same feeling that makes a ventriloquist dummy, porcelain dolls or clowns creepy. I suppose that speaks to why Halloween is such a special day. It is the one day that wearing a mask is seen as normal.
The Gary Baseman Nightmares of Halloween exhibit will run from October 20th to November 24th.
