Photography classes at my German college have taught me how to achieve precision and perfectionism – or at least they always tried to tell me that these were the only things worth going for in photography. How boring. Photography classes in Britain have taught me how to create an atmosphere that will give you the creeps. Let a place or inanimate object come alive, focus on darkness, light and shadow, venture to areas where it is hard to see what’s going on for real. Look from unusual angles an point the finger at the unobtrusive. Herein lies the nature of horror and folkloristic belief. Come on – would you like to meet this dummy, or not? It’s rather harmless!
