“Take My Picture” is a fantastic mini-documentary, directed by Dasha Zhukova and Andinh Ha. It examines the phenomenon of “peacocking” in the fashion world due to the proliferation of street style blogs.

I could actually see this being part of a feature length documentary about blogging’s affect on our culture, and our desire to document everything. Watch the film below!

    i find it’s always very interesting to see the bi products of the internet generation/ the internet’s rapid growth. the technology that comes about within our lifetime and the ripples it creates in other cultures. i remember when i was a kid i had no idea how to dress so i just tried to emulate people i saw that looked cool around me. but with the tumblr/fashionblog/lookbook generation it’s easy to flip through looks and decide what is popular or trendy. it’s almost like where before the internet it would take a long time with a discerning eye to develop your own style, now you just surf the web pick a look and wear it. cool post jeff!

      ya this is an interesting topic to me as well in terms of the homogenization of culture, style, art, everything is becoming one big giant soup.

    The hunched over photographer’s shuffle is endlessly amusing.

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.

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!
