    Hungry Ghost Festival

    In celebration of the Hungry Ghost Festival (27 Jul – 24 Aug) across Asia, we go in search of some of the most impressive macabre photography.  Produced by conceptual photographers such as Christopher McKenney and Joshua Hoffine, these works of art so skillfully blend the macabre with beauty, they will both horrify and mesmerise you. Hopefully, these images are the only things that will spook you this Hungry Ghost Festival.

    Puffer fish
    Unlike its moniker, Puffer fish is actually quite friendly and approachable. Unless you’re out to eat her lunch – or dessert — to be precise – then be prepared that she might raise her spikes at you. Good food is just one of her many likes, Puffer Fish also loves visiting new and familiar places around the world because she believes there are always new discoveries and adventures to be had. She considers herself one lucky ass to be able to put her editorial background to good use by sharing her travel and gastronomical adventures online via Gratenews. She hopes readers get as much enjoyment and insights from her pieces as she has writing them.
