    Simply put – nobody does it better than the BBC. This series will blow your mind. I just hope they keep the John Hurt narration for the North American viewers. For some bizaare reason Oprah narrated the Life series in the USA as opposed to David Attenborough over here (basically the definitive voice of Nature as confirmed by my Canadian fiance).

    It certainly looks great, but they should call it “Men planet”, because only a few women appear in the trailer. There we go again, judging men´s activities as amazing and brave and keeping half of the world`s inhabitants in the shadows… sorry but I can`t feel indiferent about this kind of things.

      good point. i have a hard time watching trailers/documentaries like this and just getting lost in the awe… i can’t help but wonder about the complicated nature of (privileged, most likely potentially former colonizers) outsiders making these kinds of documentaries, regardless of how stunning some of the images are and impressive the technical side of getting those images is…

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
