    what an amazingly sad and aesthetic series.

    It’s the American Dream!

    (hmph [fart sound])

  • Maciel

    It really is a somber series.

  • gabe

    Saw this on Behance a while back. Love seeing it again!g

    The first is def. my favorite. The wet street in the snow looks like they just snow-plowed the roads…what a cool feeling. That house must have a fight club brewing somewhere inside…haha

  • Lauris

    really boring. the same angle, same composition, dull lighting (sometimes it works though). concept is good, but there should be a better way to fulfil it. although, first pic has something.

    i love them, because although they are desolate buildings where there is no longer life they are all slightly quirky, interesting and different.
    Also, in the second and fourth pictures the abandoned biuldings are deffinatley on the same street and i thinmk they are either side of the same building. i wouldnt really want to live in the one in the middle

    Photos are great! I can sit and stare at these houses and let my imagination run wild. I do not know very much about Detroit and from when these homes were built and actually inhabited, but they look so eerie. Great stuff!

    An incredible series. I’m sure it either stemmed or stemmed from the “Object Orange” project.

    Connecting with the gothic tradition, very interestng serie.
    Like Rachel Whiteread non active part of the project; Both very interested in topic like ruines and exterior, like shells, stared with a very new point of view (newer in case of Whiteread)
    (Take a look at her, she was the Turner Prize ’93 winner :))

    nice set.!!

  • Peter

    Fascinating. Sort of a familial, civilizational memento mori – those empty windows are eerie. Especially like no. 3 with the collapsed porch.

  • http://sradnidge.com sr

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
