Link List #33


At FvF, we’re always connected. With our Link List, we wade into the frontlines of the digital zeitgeist to find the best articles and links and then collect them here for you to enjoy and share.

In this edition of the Link List, a little ‘90s nostalgia and a bunch of ex-pat hippies have us thinking about timelessness. We’re also sharing stories about social tides in New Orleans and the independent film industry, alongside bulletins from inventors and creatives who are going against the grain. Check out the full list of what is capturing our attention lately.

  1. Photographer Nakeya Brown is pushing back against ideas of beauty traditionally represented in the media – Dazed Magazine has the scoop.
  2. Rolling Stone takes us back to the ‘90s and a movie website that was years ahead of its time: Space Jam.
  3. Vice hangs out with British ex-pats living off the land in Spain.
  4. 25 innovators and creators are forging ahead in their fields, from museum curation to hair coloring to wireless electricity. They’re profiled in a special series on Cool Hunting.
  5. Huck Magazine finds out what results when you put 100 disposable cameras in the hands of homeless Londoners.
  6. Our new collaboration with VSCO has us stoked to keep growing our grid. The latest journal post highlights our trip to Oaxaca to find the best mezcal.
  7. Is independent film-making done for? The New Inquiry investigates.
  8. Behind the scenes with photographer Brian Finke, the world’s most muscular bodies show their sensitive side. The New York Times has the series on their photo blog, Lens.
