Joachim Ladefoged for A&EA&E brings to life the haunting world of Stephen King in an adaptation of the bestselling author's Bag of Bones. The novel tells the story of a writer struggling with the death of his wife and the supernatural happenings in his hometown of Dark Score, Maine. To promote the two-night movie, A&E launched DarkScoreStories.com, an interactive website that features a photo-driven narrative of the troubled town. Joachim Ladefoged captured the images that tell the story of the town.
Ladefoged's moody black and white photographs represent the work of a photojournalist who visits the town a year before the events of the movie. The website features photo essays on seven prominent residents with captions written in the voice of the photojournalist. Each essay contains just one image that has been given a subtle GIF treatment. The GIFs create an unsettling effect and add haunting clues to the subtext of the scene. In addition to the site, A&E bound Ladefoged's photographs into a coffee table book and sent it out for promotion.
Ladefoged's photographs are on DarkScoreStories.com now.
