A collection of surreal and creepy photos by American photographer Arthur Tress, many of them inspired by the dreams and nightmares of children. As a kid in the 1950s, Tress began taking pictures the circus freaks and dilapidated buildings around Coney Island and its amusement park. The project depicted here, done in the late-1960s, combines his interest in ritual ceremony, Jungian archetypes, and social allegory. 

The result is super creepy and totally terrifying.
