    Wow, great as always. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think his style has changed a bit, especially the first and fourth are different from before. I wish I could see them in person.

    cannot stop staring, really love the kids running along the highway but also the fishing one too, also feel has style has changed a bit, but prefer the new work! Much more texture in the skin!

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.

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!
