    "i had a dream that you were on the side of the road selling huge polaroid prints, and one of the pictures was a nude man but they wouldn't let you sell it like that so you ripped the print and crossed the street and you kept telling everyone to buy the whole print they would have to cross the street to buy the other half."

    "Defekto makes little squares of delicious genius that are more addictive than peanut butter brownies. He is nice to animals and has never once tried to assassinate a king. If you are moving, he will lend you his truck."

    Lord Jim says:

    "I just realized that I stopped adding favorites from Defekto's stream simply cause they all are Faves!
    These are categorically baller! No shit! Without exception! It's uncanny.
    Which is why we have to kill him:
    He's build a transmogrifier that mesmerizes all the beautiful people in the world to move to Baltimore, then he wills them into his subjects. The rest of us get to take pictures of flowers and rust...
    Death is welcome.

    And then there's that incredibly scarce quality I noticed: I don't think I've ever heard Jim dissing anyone or anything... He always finds something redeeming in everything. That's nobility! I think he somehow belives in the subversive power of tact, manners and humble kindness...wow, weird.

    Anyways...keep freaking the mundane Jim. Someone's gotta do it."

    "If I ever meet a genie, one of my wishes will be for the the two worlds of Defekto and the Cliterati to meet... and Klaus and I end up featured in his magic photostream. He is our favorite!"

    "Defekto shoots the kinds of parties I want to go to. And his pictures have such panache. If I was to visit the states, I would go to Baltimore and not leave....

    Keep shooting, you're an inspiration."

    "defekto uploads some of the most insane, crazy, and daring photos I have ever seen. It's always a pleasure browsing through the sets... it's like I always discover something new lurking in there. The portraits are amazing and I have never seen anything like them before. Truly original and one of my new favorite photographers!

    Keep up the amazing work!"

    "i don't know if defekto reveals or imparts magic onto his subjects, but everyone becomes divine under his photographic gaze. he's simply the best portraitist you'll find here, so add him as a contact now and brag to your friends later that you knew about him back in his flickr days."

    "He's the Prince of Pain, the Balls of Confusion, The Guy With His Finger On It and a man who can light a goddammed photo no matter where or when. Go forth and conquer defekto, may you rule the world."

    ""Hey kids, stop snogging and pay attention to me. 'Cos if you're a wild-eyed loner standing at the gates of Oblivion, hitch a ride with us. 'Cos we're on the last freedom moped out of Nowhere City, and we haven't even told our parents what time we'll be back ! So put on your dancing trousers, and get down to the utter King of Rock and Roll, CLIFF RICHARD !!!""

    MatthewA says:

    "Glorious urban squalor meets distressed technicolor nightmares with a dash of social commentary and a hairy asscheek or two thrown in for good measure. That's how I'd describe the brilliance of Defekto.

    I wouldn't even dare use the word "kitsch" to describe Defekto's work; to do so would only serve to label and pigeonhole the photographic work of this man, and it's quite apparent he's wayyyyyyyy beyond that. From dirty toilets to the glance of a colorful personality with an unidentifiable gender, it's all here.

    So pull up a chair, look through every single one of his photos if you have the balls to do, and prepare to be entertained. It's certainly a trip.

    I only wish he was available in pill form."
