John Constantine vs. Neo (348/365)

Posted to Flickr on 14 December 2010. Part of the Duel 365 series.

John Constantine: A foul-mouthed occult detective with a network of associates all over the world who fights supernatural forces, wears a grungy trenchcoat, and pursues a unique life of danger, weirdness, and sorcery.

Neo: Thomas Anderson, an office worker who escaped the control of the Matrix thanks to a network of fellow hackers, wears a slick, black trenchcoat, and is considered "The One" to bring peace to humanity.

If they had to fight, who would win?

#348 in the Duel 365 series.

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.

Duel 365

Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
