*Update November 11th – I am gonna update this entire list, get rid of Tumblrs that are no longer updated, and add a whole bunch more.
I am starting to compile an extensive curated 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 quality suggestions.
This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey works 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) and I’d like to include as many sites as possible that credit the original creators.
Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be! Stoked for this! Let’s go!
+ ART/PHOTO TUMBLRS +
A few years ago Google launched the Google Art Project, as a way of providing virtual tours of gallery spaces. Now Barcelona-based artist Mario Santamaría has created a tumblr called The Camera In The Mirror where he collects images of the Google camera capturing itself in a mirror.
There’s something unsettling about the camera’s ghostly appearance; the images almost look like stills from a Kubrick film. More images below.
Bianca Luini is a 22-year old fashion design student in Milan and she’s created one of my favourite Tumblrs: Where I See Fashion. The concept is really simple, Bianca finds fashion photos and pairs them with other images she finds on Tumblr. It could easily be a forgettable project but the way she matches compositions and colours is fantastic.
See more of my favourite pairs below!
If you recognize this image as a scene from The Blue Brothers then Google Street Scene just might be your new favourite Tumblr. Tre Baker doctors film stills to look like they’re pulled from Google Street View!
I love the details he includes, the glitches, face blurring, even the shadow of the Google Street View vehicle. I’ve included a few more stills below, see if you recognize the films!
