The zombie phenomenon has slowly gathered steam over the last few decades, culminating in hundreds of movies, comic books, and TV shows. The fanatical zombie fanbase produces a staggering amount of content every year – fan fiction, films, web series… and photographs. “Zombies” are an ideal subject matter for the exploratory photographer: they present colors and scenarios not necessarily experienced on a normal photoshoot.
