Halloween 2022: Jackman's End

Updated with night photos...

I always feel incredibly lucky to be the one hosting this wonderful Haunt's photo galleries.  Holy Tarra's Jackman's End is once again pure magic.  And I think this might be my personal favorite year so far.  A staggering level of detail here.  And such a strange and wonderful story being told - of Phytoalchemy and Death and Botanical Abominations.

Never, never disappoints! Always a highlight of the year. Absolutely gorgeous amazing incredible...choose the superlative. No one else can even conjure such ideas let alone bring them to fruition.

WoW! Your use of florals and all the vines is mind-boggling! Those skull heads (especially the one with the roots hair) are so macabre with the flowers around them. You really created an atmosphere here that stays with you. Would love to have seen this in person.

WOW! Thank you, guys! Really! Ragged Grin, I think that's about the nicest compliment I've ever gotten. It's such a strange journey falling down this rabbit hole of yard haunting and finding myself spending a huge chunk of time working on temporary art every year. Crazy but so fun.
Thank you, Rot for this insane post! Being a part of this is sooo cool. Thanks for always being a source of inspiration. ; )

It's as beautiful and atmospheric as it is unique.

I'm looking forward to seeing the night shots.

Rot said...

Yeah. Organic overload. It's amazing. Such a cool strange concept.

Such a phenomenal haunt. Looks like it belongs in Lambertville!

Rot said...

I totally agree!

Holy Tarra said...

Thank you so much guys! This years display was really close to my heart....lots of experimentation and stretching.

Revenant Manor said...

Must be wonderful to walk around in it...all of the colors, texture, and shadows make it seem so otherworldly.
