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 additional framing transforms each piece into something quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

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. See more images below.
In “Historic Present,” Korean artist Sungseok Ahn combines past and present by shooting old images of historical locations on screens that line up perfectly with the present-day. Creating such a stark overlap, Ahn’s work explores issues of memory, the rapid passage of time, as well as the way history is treated. More images from his series below.
