Joshua Hoffine, Face, May, 2008. Hoffine’s daughter Chloe, far right.
…I’m joking of course. Even though Hoffine often uses his own daughters (he has four) as subjects in his photos. Hoffine’s latest photograph entitled FACE (above), is an homage to horror royalty, Asia Argento. Asia is the daughter of Italian splatter master, Dario Argento.
Asia Argento. “Who the fuck is Angelina Joile?”…
Actually, Joshua Hoffine and Dario Argento have more in common besides their love for blood, as both have used their kids in the name of art. Although Argento seems to have no problem slashing his daughter’s nude body to bits on screen, Hoffine is quick to point out that he only photographs his kids on closed, empty sets. Man, I wish Joshua Hoffine was my Dad. Although my Dad gave me my first Black Sabbath record, which makes Cherrybomb’s Dad and Joshua Hoffine of equal coolness, in my book.
Speaking of coolness, Asia Argento has once again starred in another one of her Dad’s movies. 2007’s, Mother of Tears will run in Seattle for one week starting July 4th, at the Varsity.

Hoffine is currently in the process of making a movie called Black Lullaby. Natch, right? You check out the rest of Hoffine’s photos here. Although you might want to leave the lights on…
