Eolo Perfido’s Clownville Goes Deeper Than His Subjects’ Masks (NSFW)

“The first instrument of the portraitist is not the light, or the lens or the camera,” explains Eolo Perfido. “It’s the subject.” The French-born, Italian photographer is a deeply thoughtful creator. His series, Clownville, offers a dose of innovation, a slice of controversy and a generous handful of compelling concepts. Whether you’re amused or afraid of clowns, he has brought to life art that you won’t be able to look away from. For him, the series is not just an example of the creative mind; it’s a metaphor of life. The work will get you thinking. It may shock or it may delight. What is for certain, however, is that it will grab your attention.
