Every now and then a photographer shows up on the radar that just makes you wonder what the hell he/she was thinking. This time around we can blame the Swiss. His name is David Houncheringer.
Like many working photographers, Houncheringer applies his imagery to several areas including advertising, editorial and video but it was a particular series titled ‘Would you like to die today?’ that had special appeal to us.
From a Columbine-type school shooting to a hunter caught in a bear trap, the images from Die? series are instantly recognisable as fake, funny and peppered with hilarious hidden details.
So, we got in touch and asked him a few questions.
