This photo series by French photographer Vincent Bousserez perfectly captures the childhood fears that once plagued many of us growing up -- and sometimes still do.
The photographer was inspired to create the photography series when staying in a picturesque but old home in the countryside with his friends and family. He captured the photos using children surrounded by shadows that were created by their parents -- and the artist expertly used lighting and photography techniques to blur the shadows and silhouettes and make them appear as ghosts. In the middle of the eerie scenes are children experiencing their worst nightmares come to life.
This photography series poignantly captures the childhood fears that were once experienced by most people.
