    Theese are so emotional, and the fact that people made em with their own pictures makes it so much better then rest of the “pics within pics” floating around. Truely love theese.

    Beautifully surreal.

  • Morgan A

    These are beautiful in a way that filled me with sadness. Things change so much over time. Some of the people could no longer be present and reminiscing over the times that one used to have could make you realize how simple life used to be. Now our lives are filled with so much chaos and technology. But amazing photos nonetheless.

    I like how all the trees grew in the background. Nature won’t give us up :)

      haha yaa!

  • Chelsea

    Wow, this a really fascinating project.
    I felt kind of the same way as Morgan, though not about the technology aspect. It simultaneously expresses the emotion shown in the photograph, then anchors it in present day, which is somehow sad… I suppose reminiscing about any memory (especially happy ones) has that feeling of sadness to it.

    This *is* a…

      yea its weird how we assume the person is sad looking at a happy memory. i think it has to do with the fact that we know that what lies behind the photograph is an empty space

  • lapetitefaon

    Wow, looking at these made me want to cry! I want to go back to my childhood home and do this! So bittersweet!

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

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

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!
