I was pretty thrilled to find the Things Organized Neatly tumblr a few months ago, but only recently came to the realization that the best of the best out of those knolling photos were all taken by Portland-based photographer Jim Golden. He has a solid collection of perfectly knolled objects (read up on the skill of knolling!) and its a delight to see large collections of say, 8 track tapes being laid out in such a methodical way.

Each collection is a delicious snapshot of colors, texture, and variety. You can buy prints here.

This look is deceptively simple– there is a balance and rhythm to knolling that takes some practice, and even the simplest photograph involves elaborate set-ups and careful lighting. Some process photos:

More, please. [Via Things Organized Neatly.]
