In fact, he’s recently launched a Kickstarter campaign that aims to collect all of his haunting images into one of the scariest books you’ll ever read.

His most famous photo series, ‘After Dark My Sweet,’ focuses on the childhood nightmares we’ve all had.

Who among us hasn’t wondered what’s underneath those basement stairs…

…or behind that bed sheet?

What’s even more interesting about his work is that he uses his own daughters in his photos.

But whether they’re being threatened by werewolves, Satan, or a demented intruder, they’re always game.

The results are amazing…

…even if the subject matter is the stuff of our deepest, darkest fears.

Hoffine claims his kids are always proud to be featured in his work.

And even if the children in his shots aren’t his own, as seen here with his sister’s newborn, they still do an amazing job.

Hoffine makes sure his children know the situations aren’t real and that they aren’t exposed to any danger.

In fact, he describes a photo shoot as such… “They loved it. It was like a giant game of dress-up for them.”

“They also knew we were making a scary picture, and loved the idea of scaring the audience as much as I did,” said Hoffine.

Still, his work extends well beyond his brood.

Like this homage to the medieval murderess Lady Bathory…

His latest image even features Mermen and actor Doug Jones, thanks to his love of H.P. Lovecraft…
