This week, we’ll do a bit of a photographer face-off between a couple of my favorites: Eolo Perfido and Fredrik Ödman. So take a look at their work, and vote for the one you like the best.


And check out the results from last week’s poll: Do You Make Money From Your Photography? It turns out that most have never tried, and the majority of those who have are making little or nothing from it. On the bright side, there is a good handful of people who are earning enough to at least buy some new equipment from time to time.

While I wasn’t keen on either of them, I voted for Eolo.

I’m not a big fan of ‘staged’ photography. Fredrik’s seemed quite macabre and similar to HR Geiger, while Eolo’s was still staged but just that little bit more natural.

I don’t know why you chose either, Brian, other than to shock the visitor enough into interacting with your post. I found Fredrik Ödman’s work very disturbing. Simply put, he disgusts me and seems like a mentally ill individual. At least Eolo Perfido’s work had some sort of social criticism value, although he’s right “out there” as well. My reaction to both: filthy stuff.

Raoul, I know how you feel about things like this in general. My view is that not all photography worth looking at consists of sweeping landscapes, pretty flowers, and flattering portraits. I find Fredrik’s work to be highly creative and imaginative, and I applaud him for stepping outside the bounds of traditional photography to create something new and interesting — even if it is shocking and nonconforming. It’s quite possible that he’s a disturbed individual, but I like his work nonetheless.
