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.
*Update November 24th 2015 – I am still updating this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!
I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.
This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.
Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be! Stoked for this! Let’s go!

Here’s a great portrait of our friend photographer Alex Strohl and his approach to life and photography. Documenting people who have decided to live in remote areas across Europe, director Liam Mitchell (who shot our Heavy Dreamers film) captures Alex, and his partner Andrea Dabene, as they make their way through the Alps. Check out the video below!
Each issue of the bi-annual art photography magazine, Aint-Bad, focuses on a specific theme or cultural observation. The subject of their latest issue: the selfie! As they’re quick to note: “Some surprising things happen when you put out a bold, seemingly dangerous, call for selfie submissions…” Click below for a sneak peak at Aint-Bad’s provocative Self-ie issue!
Performance artist, Jared Bark’s work was recently on display at Southfirst Gallery in New York City. Curated by Maika Pollack, Photobooth Works, 1969-1976 marked Bark’s first solo exhibition in over 35 years. While he initially used actual public booths around the city, Bark eventually acquired one of his own, experimenting with various interconnected lines and shapes in addition to using his own body for different sets of photographs.
