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:

    All the best

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing on them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life. After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
