“Hometowns” by Photographer John MacLean

John Baldessari, National City, California

 

London-based photographer John MacLean travelled the world, capturing the hometowns of his heroes. Photographing each in the artist’s own aesthetic, MacLean explores how the places they grew up influenced their work and, in turn, his own. See more photo-homages from “Hometowns” below or in his book, available here.

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

See the rest of the series below.
