Portfolio: Fantastic animals and the art of photographing them, by Fredrik Ödman

When photography becomes experimental, and better yet, it meets other disciplines such as illustration, playful creations arise like those of Fredrik Ödman.

My regards to those photographers who are proficient in the technique and can use the camera as an extension of themselves when taking photos. It's one thing to have a lucky day or know how to apply filters, and another is to know how to take pictures.

Having said that, I have to confess that with everything I enjoy photography as a form of artistic expression, it is the projects that go beyond "simple" photos that I enjoy the most. The projects that surprise me, that challenge me, projects that are not afraid to break schemes are what excite me, and one of them is the Composed Animals series of Fredrik Ödman .

Using digital retouching tools Ödman integrates parts of different animals into new fantastic beings, which only because we know that they do not really exist do we recognize as unreal. Adding to the formula illustrations as backgrounds, and a good management of lighting, manage to create images that look like photos of dissected extinct animals exposed in an old museum, which gives even more realism to his images.

If animals that defy all logic like the platypus exist, why not the creations of Fredrik Ödman.
