A Dark Arts October - Day 1

Well here we are, the first of October! Fascination with Fear has taken an almost year-long hiatus, for reasons previously explained.  But I couldn't let the month go by without celebrating the season in one way or another, and this year I am pleased to be doing a month-long feature of one of my favorite photographers, Derek McEntire.  He and I share a common interest in abandoned places, the melancholy mood they project, so I am letting you all in on the talent I'm already fascinated with.  See his bio to follow, and yes - he does sell his work!  

Happy October and all the best to you and yours in this, the best month of the year!!  Enjoy!


*A Dark Arts October is a month-long celebration of the work of 25 year old Derek McEntire, a photographer from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  His eye for the melancholy and macabre in abandoned locations makes for a perfect feature for FASCINATION WITH FEAR for this, the spookiest time of the year. 

Bio in his own words:   "I fell into photography by accident when visiting Eastern State Penitentiary.  After visiting,  I entered a picture I took in a photography competition and got first place... from that point on I fell in love with the art of photography.   My all time favorite artist is Andy Warhol & favorite musicians include  Johnathan Davis of the band Korn, Billy Corgan from the band The Smashing Pumpkins, and Robert Smith from The Cure. In my spare time I enjoy music and going to concerts, traveling and drinking coffee/teas.  My current project includes my 2018 Destination Abandoned Photography Calendar.  It will be up for purchase no later than December 2017."
Please check out his website or email him directly at for more information on purchasing photos.
