Artist j.frede (pronounced J. Fred) has been using photographs found in flea markets to create some great custom frames.
The project is called Fiction Landscapes, in which each of the Los Angeles-based photographer’s custom frames shows a calm and serene visual narrative. Composed horizontally across the wall with one frame bleeding into another, the anonymous landscapes speak of fictionalized pasts.
Citing the inspiration behind the project, Frede says, “How many people have pulled over at that rest stop and taken nearly the same photo of the plain hillside? All locking their own associations into the view, first road trip with a new love; last road trip to see grandma; one of many road trips alone.”
