A bunch of Romanian photographers, models and make-up artists gathered last month for a Halloween photoshoot and the results are impossible to handle.
Plague-doctor leather masks, chainsaws, shovels, fire, devilish women, everything set in the dark forests of Brasov (Romania), completed the Poe-esque atmosphere that was way beyond the Halloween photo workshop everybody aimed for.
Amongst the photographers present at the shooting we’ve identified George Gradinaru, Strumfu Catalin, Dragos Sanda and Cristi Bigu. The “innocent” beauties that stood up for their omen doctors: Poiana Angelescu, Roxana Rus, Cristiana Sarageaua, Nistor Rodica and Diana Stefan.
Pavel Vasilescu (aka Pavelcraft, whose work we previously featured on the webzine provided the unmistakable masks), while Ela Gradinaru and Claudia Popa took care of the gorgeous make-ups.
Check some more of the beautifully dark scenes below, of which the old Edgar (and his crow) would be so proud they would kill for:

Great, thank you for this articole. I love it.
Just a little mențion, thouhg. Ela Gradinaru was the designer of the outfits and Claudia Popa, indeed, the make-up artist.
