    wow… not sure what else to say.

    so this is real?! like, I know near nothing about photography or cinematography, just love looking at it…are stars and galaxies able to be picked up by film, or does this video involve editing/special effects?

    regardless, i’m amazed by it. Absolutely wonderful.

      I’m sure there is some post production, but this is what the sky looks like when it isn’t being polluted by light from a city.

    and to think I live in a city with light pollution so bad you can hardly see a star, this made me homesick for El Tiede (the mountain this was apparently taken from) even though I’ve never been before!

    Even tough I love this images, it’s really hard for me to believe that this as no manipulation. It’s hard to believe that it’s still possible to capture images like that. However, despite my doubts, it’s is an incredibly beautiful video. :)

    It’s so nostalgic that it appears surreal, or manufactured.

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.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
