Halloween might be a few months away, but the 12:31 photo series will give you goosebumps that will last until October rolls around. As far as eerie projects go, this one takes the cake for more reasons than just its spooky aesthetic.

Put together by Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott, the 12:31 photo series is based on old images of a convicted murderer who was executed back in 1993. His body was given to science to be examined and subsequently photographed for research. This artistic duo enlisted their assistant to move around in front of these images that were played full-screen on a laptop.

With that, the 12:13 photo series was born. A collection of ghostly light paintings, these 12:31 prints are on sale for $700. All proceeds go to Amnesty International.
