Photographer #179: Aaron Hobson

Aaron Hobson, 1977, USA, is also known as the Cinemascapist. He grew up in one of the poorest city neighborhoods of Pittsburgh. Today he lives in a small town in the remote Adirondack Mountains near the Canadian border. Since four years he has started taking images. He calls his photography Cinemascapes. They are semi-autobiographical, dealing with old memories together with his current living situation. His panoramic self-portraits are intentionally cinematic to reflect our modern technologically driven culture. His stories are open-ended, but do have an underlying purpose. Writer John Wood wrote about Aaron's work; "that his imagery exudes sexuality and danger, those two narcotics we never seem to be able to get out of our systems." The following images come from his portfolio.

I'm glad to see you've spotlighted Aaron Hobson. I think his photographs are some of the most interesting work I've seen from anyone in the past decade.
