Sean Gordon – Photographer and actor

Having started off being happy to shoot landscapes and abandoned buildings, Sean made the mistake of checking out a zombie walk in 2008, and has been pursuing dark imagery and performance art ever since. The rural-based horror of Rutherford Manor is a perfect mixture of everything he likes to shoot. Sean didn’t know how much he’d embrace the panic though, until 2019, where he will be making his Rutherford Manor Haunt acting debut.
