Dutch artist Helmut Smits' work almost always dares to be dangerously controversial, but 'Photo Tip' definitely pushes the envelope. 'Photo Tip' is a new installation that lets people take a photo in front of a terrorist hostage-taker backdrop.

'Photo Tip' is both comical and frightening at the same time, though I can't help but feel a sense of dread looking at these pictures. Regardless, art is meant to incite strong emotion, so check out 'Photo Tip' in the featured gallery for a fright. Stats for Terrorist Photo Ops Trending: Older & Warm
