Where form meets function

The Anthropologist is a site put out by clothing and homewares label Anthropologie, but you’d never know it by looking at the site. The clean, minimal template is used to showcase and celebrate the works of artists. The Urban Land Project by photographer Tim Simons is one of the artist projects featured on the site.

Urban Land is a series of photographs, taken by Simmons, blown up in scale and plastered on billboards along some of L.A. and Philadelphia’s busiest highways and intersections. The images shown are close-ups of the texture and detail of the city’s land, and are meant to make viewers take a second look at their own surroundings.
