Away from the joys of pillows full of candy and excited little kids dressed up as minions, Halloween also reminds everyone of the abandoned houses left to haunt the people who pass by.

Mashable published a piece on photographer Seph Lawless, who focuses on capturing some authentically spooky houses.

The article states:

Lawless, who has a particular knack for inserting himself into abandoned and often dilapidated areas, renders these structures in a pretty haunted fashion — mostly because they actually are haunted.

Lawless tells Mashable that his "goal with the project is to challenge and hopefully inspire the viewer to see beauty in even some of the most grotesque things that we see."
