  1. Great photography indeed! Long ago i did courses in theatrical masks and make up, i must say that what you captured is an amazingly executed work! And i am forever impressed by subcultures, so your post is a real treat there too, thank you!

    • Thank you for the nice comments…the overall make up and theatrical masks were pretty good and being in zombie “skins”, the participants performed well, posing ghoulishly in front of the camera especially along the iron gates :-)

  2. Nice shots! The participants did a great job with their make-up. On Oct. 13 Minneapolis held a “zombie pub crawl.” I just heard that 35,000 people attended. I really don’t get this zombie craze!

    • Thank you, 13th Oct was the world Zombie day … I am not sure how it got its “day” but it seems so popular and I guess now it has become a prequel to All Saints Day and Halloween – and the story continues :-)

  3. Wow! What a blog site. I am truly looking forward to exploring your images and your words as you creatively wrap yourself and your camera around events of the world. Glad to have discovered you!

  4. Wow, Paris has the best-dressed zombies on earth! But then, I would expect nothing less from The City of Light…or should I say Darkness? ;)
