Vintage Halloween

Halloween has become a cultural and commercial phenomenon over the years, with ever more elaborate costumes and decorations on display. In his book, "Haunted Air," artist and musician Ossian Brown explores the origins of Halloween through a collection anonymous, vintage photographs from the 19th and early 20th century. While the costumes are simpler, and most likely homemade, these spooky embodiments of the Halloween spirit easily rival anything seen today. CREDIT: Courtesy Ossian Brown
