From the gallery’s website:

“Fear is paramount to our survival. It is a powerful, primitive and deeply wired reaction. Our bodies respond similarly whether we experience fear, joy or excitement. Adrenaline levels increase; we become very alert and we sweat. Sometimes, we find ourselves laughing in response to a scary experience, as if to say in defiance, “I’m not scared.” This incongruous reaction is a temporary ruse. And yet, fear is often what makes us feel alive. If given a platform, fear is capable of opening the door to tremendous personal growth.

“What spooks you? What raises the hair off the back of your neck? What lies in the dark that makes you afraid?”
