Interview: Rick Jones on his Brides of Horror portraiture

'The Brides of Horror' is an ongoing passion, which has so far been going strong for five years now. The project spawned from my love horror films, something that’s been present since my early childhood. Most of the iconic characters that I’ve always admired have been from this genre and I’m particularly a fan of the Bride of Frankenstein and other female horror icons. 

In my work I shoot portraiture of people as horror characters, zombies and vampires – 'The Brides of Horror' just seemed like a natural progression of this. It probably won’t ever be completed, as I just keep getting new ideas to shoot more.
