Readers of Charles Burns' creepy comic book series Black Hole will recognize these faithful recreations of the yearbook photos of the monstrous teenagers from the series.
The project was a collaboration between photographer Max Oppenheim and prosthetic artist Bill Turpin. Theoperators.net has the full series of photos, but unfortunately its Flash interface makes using the website as fun as brushing up against a Teddybear Cholla Cactus.
UPDATE: Bless Spencer Cross' heart for finding the non-Flash blog entry.
