Horrorbles will be featuring Photographer James Sorfleet all october with an opening reception Saturday, September 29 from 7:00pm-10:00pm.
James Sorfleet is a self-taught photographer. Since the young age of 16 he has been fascinated with the ability to capture moments in time through the lens of a camera.
His work is meant to be both a reflection of the human condition and a portrayal of the shadowy recesses of our minds. Sorfleet's images are meant to illicit a response & intended to seize the attention of the viewer and conceivably force one to peer deep inside, visiting the aspects of themselves that are often avoided, excluded or ignored.
Jim's inspiration comes from a myriad of sources, one outstanding being the palpable interest in exploring the abyss of the psyche, which goes unrecognized. The unique muse-like qualities of each one of the models depicted in his work has also played a role in his artistic vision.
All displayed pieces will be available for sale with James present all evening.
Horrorbles is the brainchild of self described horror and sci-fi fanatic John Aranza. Aranza, who is lovingly known by many of his loyal fans as "Monster Man", has grown the business into a cult favorite over the past few years. With a knack for finding the most obscure collectible request and a reputation for creating singular events, such as signings and film festivals featuring icons of the genre, such as Patricia Neal of The Day the Earth Stood Still, artist and illustrator Basil Gogos, Ricou Browning, "the man in the suit" from The Creature from The Black Lagoon, Tura Satana famous for her roles in Russ Meyer films such as Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill!, Aranza has become a central figure in the Chicago horror community.

Currently featuring hard to find and out of print classic movie titles, original lobby cards and posters from classic films, models, figurines, original books & magazines as well as apparel, jewelry, new magazines and literature, and novelty gifts as well as the gallery and lifestyle additions which have just been introduced.
