These Eerie Building Façades Look Like a Scary Movie Set

Using photo manipulation software, French artist Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy has created a series of eerie, faux neighborhoods that appear to be made up of billboard-like fronts in the place of real structures. Called Façades, the ongoing project is reminiscent of the work of like-minded artists who've tweaked home exteriors in real life—creating similarly spectacular results. These, though, with their digitally-altered architecture, feel charged with a certain uneasiness—as if the single-walled homes purposely hide the secret emptiness within. "The façade is the first thing we see, it's the surface of a building," the artist further explains. "It can be impressive, superficial or safe. This series thus offers a vision of an unknown world that would only be a picture, without intimate space, with looks as the only refuge." Find a few more spooky shots, below:
