The ModFab Gallery: Viking, Dresden, Fisheye

Each week our Best In Show competition is drawing more and more votes, which is tres exciting...we love showcasing great photobloggers, and are glad you like judging them. (Modfabbers, judging things? Us? Really?) Last week's event was almost a tie, with only two votes separating the rest of the field from the winner Brown Glasses, whose fabulous portrait Smoke makes me want to light up again.

Featured PhotoBlog:
Graciform / 481

Jonne Ollakka, the artist behind Graciform, is a 31-year-old photographer from Gothenberg, Sweden (coincidentally, the same city of last week's featured mashup artist, DJ Cal...what are they putting in the water over there?). Jonne says that the work is "a real mix of styles and subjects, captured with different cameras and formats. I really need that variety to keep myself inspired. My interest in photography started getting more serious about six years ago, when I bought a digital camera. It wasn't love at first use as the damn thing wouldn't behave like my SLR. The frustration also resulted in me finding out everything about how cameras work. Now, after making a homemade lens and experimenting with various things, I'm headed for 4x5" large format. I'm just waiting for the sun to return." Can't wait to see what happens, Jonne!
