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.

    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

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
