This photographic project is an exploration of urban legends in American culture and their deeper meaning on a societal level. The images seek to parallel the often-grotesque ambiguity of urban legends with the iconic conventions of horror, inspired through film and literature. I set out to illustrate the urban legends through small narratives or single stand alone images. Symbolically, the images are a manifestation of our own fears as a society that are pragmatically implied through urban mythology, whilst also seeking to observe these fears from an alternative perspective and challenge preconceptions.
