    this is by far the best one of the remake series
    from picking frida ( and especialy that painting ) to realization of the final remake.
    I realy like the reference to painting the bodypaint gives in the foto
    & this faint sense of erotic it gives you
    which is also always there when looking at kahlo
    she also had this weird aura around her,
    which is drawing you closer and at the same time pushes you away

    claire neatly caught that aspect.

    reminds me I still have to take a photograph sooner or later: in my neighbourhood there’s one guy living in an antique flat.. in his eating room there’s a wall full of frida kahlo paintings (around 20), it’s always odd walking by the window each evening.

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!
