From The Collection: 006 | Frere-Jones

FRÅN Frere-Jones »
Before I found type design or teaching or music, I had planned to be a painter. I put away the brushes many years ago, but returned to composition more recently, this time with a camera.These are a few selections from the old Instagram feed, where I cropped and flipped and processed and overlaid images to shed most of the physical world. I like to think that I’ll find my old mentors Malevich and Moholy-Nagy here, waiting in the fractured glint of subway tiles, or the shadowy gap between buildings.
