Fabricate by Dean West is a photo series that deals in the impossible in a dark way. From the shadowy lighting to the subtle sinister context of each scene, there is an eerie quality that will get people revved up for Halloween. Granted, there is an opulence present in each image that will bring to mind the Addams Family. No matter how quirkily creepy the family members were, they each had a sophistication that added to their aristocratic lifestyle.

In this case, Fabricate by Dean West appears to revolve around aristocratic individuals with strange pastimes, or who have simply lost a screw or two. Roberto Lacarbonara writes, "A very impressive figuration and apowerful language make the photography of Dean West a process of 'mentalphagocyting-images,' a source of a symbolic language and impetuous visualeffects."
