Dying To Get Out
Call it folk art, call it yardscapes gone wild, call it a seasonal frenzy, call it visual tales from the crypt. Every October you can count on it: a rising of ghosts, zombies, witches, skeletons, and other denizens of the dead and undead, haunting front yards and porches and other perches across the land. Sometimes a surprising amount of skill and imagination and homespun artistry go into these Halloween tableaux of bumps in the night.
As this autumn’s season kicked into high horror gear, photographer K.B. Dixon braved the otherworld and haunted the Laurelhurst and Cedar Hills neighborhoods, looking for a few good visual scares. He found ’em, and snapped ’em, and scurried away. And here, he opens his bag of tricks and shares the tricks he found. It’s a frightful world out there. Take a look if you dare.
