If you thought scary clowns were merely a figment of your imagination, think again: Eolo Perfido's latest series 'Clownville' brings the clowns of your worst nightmares to life.

There's something particularly sad and grotesque about Perfido's clowns. They are not the typical horror movie portrayal, gleeful in their bloodlust; rather, there is something all too human about them, which is perhaps the most frightening aspect.

A sense of weariness pervades the photographs, as if the clown in question has simply surrendered him or herself to their terrible, lonely fate. This is especially evident in the shot of a shirtless man with a large gut and partial clown makeup, looking apathetic and dejected as he sits, smoking a cigarette, on a red velvet chaise.
