Aaron Hobson

Aaron Hobson shoots what he calls “cinemascapes” – 4 or 5 sequential vertical images stitched together. He is the main subject in every photo, so in that sense you are looking at a series of self-portraits but the amount of detail in his compositions (and the widescreen dimensions) make them feel like still frames extracted from a larger film.

  • mitch

    great idea, and shit,
    that abandoned house shot is amazing.

  • I hear the word epic thrown around so much these days for everything from cheeseburgers to chicks asses. Epic should be used only when shit really is epic, like these shots. Since the good use of epic has been sullied on cheeseburger butts I’m officially using intense in its place. Therefore, these shots are INTENSE !1!!!! XD (End Rant)

  • this is really sick.. Kind of another version or well style to Jeff Wall to me anyways. His work is totally “EPIC” ( haha ^ ) for sure! “peg’s leg” is my favorite .. located in the “even darker ” section on his site..

  • I really like ‘Steel Town’ and ‘A Valley Lake’ in the darker series. His stuff is very inspirational and emotive.

  • yea that Steel Town one is awesome. i dont think the idea of stitching vertical photos together is anything mind blowing but his lighting and compositions are rad

  • co-sign^

  • I like a lot Aaron Hobson photos, thank you for sharing!
    He recently wrote a nice article about his work that has been published on Camera Obscura blog/magazine, if you want to have a look it is here:

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
