Hauntingly Grim Photoseries

Photographer Daniel Vazquez Captures the Occult and Supernatural

— November 10, 2015 — Art & Design
Photographer 'American Ghoul', also known as Daniel Vazquez, has a knack for capturing the strange and surreal in his photography work and often focuses on occult imagery and grim themes.

In his 'Sirens' photo series, the photographer treats his audience to an unsettlingly image of two shrouded figures set against an overcast ocean backdrop. Each female is heavily hidden -- with faces almost totally obscured from view -- and is wearing a strange black or white outfit with an unusual crown placed on top of their head. The two figures seem to embrace one another in a ritual that is never revealed to the viewer.

Whether you choose to call him 'American Ghoul' or Daniel Vazquez, this artist's unusual collection of photos will leave a lasting impression long after you've finished gazing over them.
