Ghost Dive Project for Third Looks

The photos found on the Ghost Dive Project  take advantage of un-natural light to re-cast everyday locations such parking lots or strip malls as places worth exploring. The images quickly bring to mind the types of atmospheric shots seen in horror or crime films. Ghost Dive sent me some exclusive images that go beyond just the environments themselves and add a human element. Inspired by the classic Akira manga by  Katuhiro Otomo, these images bridge the gap between reality and the fictional world of Neo-Tokyo.

If you like these images be sure to check out Ghost Dives website and Instagram.
