From the Paris Catacombs to the Magnificent Seven cemeteries in London, Europe is filled with darkness. Many people do not realize, for example, that the city of Paris sits on top of a city of the dead. From the twisted mind of award winning, internationally published and exhibited horror photographer April A. Taylor comes a new series, entitled Dark Europe, which explores some of these real-life scenes of the macabre.
For this line of work, April A. Taylor left behind the illustrative horror photography world filled with fake blood, skilled models and fully realized storylines that is her calling card. Instead she utilized only what was already in place and the results have been deemed by some to be even more disturbing than her other horror works.
Taylor’s blood-soaked and occasionally controversial pieces have been published and exhibited around the world in over 60 different books, magazines, art galleries, movies, etc. and was recently featured in Devanny Pinn’s short horror film CathARTic. Her work has garnered praise from countless industry professionals, including Fangoria.com, TheBloodSprayer.com, actress Ashley C.Williams (The Human Centipede) and several cast members from the Nightmare on Elm Street films (Lisa Wilcox, Ken Sagoes, Mark Patton and Heather Langenkamp). She has also been making appearances as an artist guest at multiple conventions around the country (next up is Detroit FanFare in September, located in her hometown of Detroit, MI).
