100 Beautifully Haunting Images

From Eerie Faceless Editorials to Ghostly Intimate Portraits

— October 25, 2013 — Fashion
There are many different ways to scare, but these beautifully haunting images take an extremely subtle approach. These editorials, art pieces and photoshoots can be described as ethereal and otherworldly, the kind of images that linger in the back of your mind rather than jump out at you.

In some cases, the subjects of these photos are not even completely clear, which makes them all the more mysterious. Effects like these turn people into ghost-like figures that could almost make you believe they are a real paranormal creature.

Another extremely eerie type of photographs are the ones that are taken in abandoned asylums or decrepit buildings. Something about these places being empty for so long makes them seem like the perfect place for ghouls or other unknown creatures to inhabit.
