Jorge Mascarenhas - What Terrified You as a Child?

Albert Einstein. Seriously! Every summer my parents would take us to this beach house in the small town of Ubatuba in Brazil. The room where me and my sister would stay had this hideous Albert Einstein painting. It was painted with mostly whites, his eyes where completely black and had the creepiest vibe. I refused to go into that room when the painting was hanging, so I always had my dad remove it. A handful of things scared me as a kid, but none would compare to the degree of terror I felt around that painting.


  1. Jesus- you captured the creepiness of this description in the image perfectly. What a bizarre and totally understandable fear. I love the little band of light- great touch.

    1. Thanks Kristina! I think that painting was cursed or something. It gives me the chills until this day.
