Christopher McKenney is a Pennsylvania-based photographer who combines surrealism with horror. We featured his work in 2013, but in the years since he has created a fascinating body of new work. The images featured here center around McKenney’s recurring motifs of facelessness and fragmentation, which together symbolize the universalizing power of death; shrouded figures appear in forests, cemeteries, and dark windows like harbingers of the beyond. McKenney’s tranquil style has a way of expressing beauty in our fears of the unknown.
