“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.
