Joey Lawrence, a Canadian photographer based in Brooklyn, New York, has captured Halloween festivities in a different light. Although the annual celebration deals with dark undertones, they are often embraced with a jovial and playful spirit especially since most Westerners participate in it for the sake of their children. Yet Joey Lawrence has decided to focus on the somber side of the festivities.

Shooting costumed individuals in the Helloinu Brooklyn borough, both children and adults alike, in black and white portrait styles, Joey Lawrence brings a moodiness to the celebrations that adds to it rather than detracting from it. Cinematic and contemporary, the portraits are just what a fan of Joey Lawrence's work has come to expect.
