"Shadowplay aka Hans - 5 years on flickr! and we are all richer for it!
Your images and your mind and your vision is wondrous and the way you see things has opened my mind to "the other side", I have learnt more from your images than any book or lesson... thank you for sharing with us... I wish you strength & light."

".confused: there it is in his profile the only adjective one could link to him because all creativeoriginal artists are ( i agree with all the testimonials especially jessiqua's--meaning there's really no way of explaining the aw!most perfect combination of technique & yes ingeniousness,"

Gustavo Cisneros says:
"Thanks for your comment dude!
i remember the first time i saw your work and it was simple not understandable how did you got those textures and information in the image ...
thats the true beauty in image production & postproduction .. leaving the observer figuring out what is he seeing and loosing proportion of realitty ..
thanks for sharing your eyes & brain"

"shadowplay was the man who inspired me to do what im doing.
That happenned when I a friend showed me his pictures on another fotol...
That´s all folks.
Stay tuned, you never know what this guy is going to come wiht..."

"He knows how to play!
If I met him in the sandbox I'd club him over the head, bury him up to his neck and force him to share his genius.
Then I might feed him some icecream.
(I also think he might secretly be batman, it's just a hunch.)"

"fun and mysterious and ......well just great.
love visiting shadowplays pics........its an adventure"
February 13th, 2007
"Shadowplay is a photographic genius, with godlike ability to animate the inanimate, and masterful control that reveals intimacies while simultaneously keeping the viewer at arms length.
And he still takes the time to leave thoughtful sweet comments on my images."

Fack to Bront says:
"Shadowplay = heroic photography. Man's a genius and no mistake.
Aye, he is."
May 1st, 2006
"I consider Shadowplay a major influence on my work. Nobody looks at the world the way he does and his striking and worldly photos never fail to leave an indelible impression."
December 11th, 2005
"Without the shadow of a doubt, Hans is the most talented yet unsettling artist on Flickr. I will never look at dolls the same way again, ever!
Love your work, you inspire me to play with light."

"Fantastic 'vision'. I am "studying" Shadows lighting techniques. Look, read, learn. If you have to learn, learn from the best and people that you admire. Thanks Shadow!"

"~Hans is just exceptionally good with his addiction...photography. Constantly and consistently 'good stuff'. Thanx for sharing the images and all the best~"
September 14th, 2005
"hans has an exceptional ability to turn any and every photograph into a work of art. I am not qualified to write a testimonial but am delighted at the same time to do so.
His work is so far above and beyond the reach of this mere mortal...He is a genius..!"

"Shadowplay was one of my first favorites at fotolog. The consistency of his quality and creative style is as amazing as the consistency and conciseness of his prose. Fabulous vision coupled with extraordinary technical expertise.
A good guide to learners and beginners.
An ounce of faint praise or gentle criticism from him is worth 8 pounds of gush and mush from anyone else. I don’t know him personally, but I suspect that spending an hour or so tasting tequila and cerveza with him out of the sun would be a fun and rewarding afternoon."

"Shadowplay is my mentor and he doesn't even know it."

Ms Entropy says:
"Ha! Yeah! Like Shadowplay even needs a testimonial...
Unbelievable, and that's about all there is to say.

"sometimes you start to wonder why you are having so much trouble taking decent photos. it goes on for maybe a few weeks, before you wander back here and find that shadowplay has stolen them all."
April 1st, 2005
"Shadowplay's work is truly brilliant and creative, but be warned - prolonged viewing will induce an overwhelming paralytic appreciation. side effects include long fugue state staring, spontaneous fits of approving grunts and nods, and a staggering artistic vertigo.
shadowplay is one of the strongest photographers in Flickr - and i say without reservation or hesitation that his Tzintzuntzan work is the finest set in all of Flickrstan.
Hans' gifted alchemy is the power to transform the raw into the sensual and shift the sensual back into the real. His work is simply magnificent."

"His photos are insanely beautiful..."

"A day without a foto of shadowplay? No way! His work is excellent, brilliant, unique. I've never seen such strong pictures like that, which catch not only my eye. They go straight to my heart. Thanks a lot for sharing them!"
January 29th, 2005
"Hans' work is extraoardinary. Sometimes his photos look as though they were rendered in carbon pencil, the detail is so well dilineated. Other times, I am struck by his unique vision and painterly approach to achieving some awesome results."
January 26th, 2005
"Nobody and I mean NOBODY captures the human spirit as well as shadowplay does! His images of people send such strong messages that one cannot help but be affected by them.
His ability to "paint with light" on the human body also astounds me. Creativeness, incredible artistic ability, and technical expertise are all charcteristics that come to mind when I think of his images. Thanks for making flickr such an addictive place shadowplay!"
January 10th, 2005
"It struck me as I logged on today. I can't go a day without seeing what shadowplay has been up to. To say his work is visionary is an understatement. His work transcends the bonds of traditional imagery. The versatility of his talent can be seen on his stream. From stark and honest portraits, to imaginative dream lands. Places where doll heads adorn billboards, and angels walk dirt streets.
In my opinion he's one of the best Flickr has to offer.
Spend some time. See what Shadowplay has been up to."

"Shadowplay inspires me and also makes me despair that I will ever be this creative and accomplished."
