Silent Night: Eerie Photographs of American Houses and Their Light Decorations
For his latest project titled "Silent Night", Berlin-based Finnish photographer Markus Henttonen documented Christmas decorated houses in the L.A. area. Henttonen photographs raise more questions and fear than provide answers and holiday spirit. This is a Christmas that is frightening and at times, bleak. Speaking about the project Henttonen said, "In this series I am more interested in the empty streets, the houses fully decorated outside and so still in the night. In my pictures the focus is on the feeling and stories, at the same time it is my story, the viewers´ story and the story of the whole society."
