One of the most exciting things about Hobson’s work: There is no single correct way to read it, no one proper narrative that leads to its understanding. With sex and danger as his guiding themes, Hobson’s work rides on the waves of our own desire and fear. They invite our personal scenarios of nightmare and pleasure.

HIS WORK MIGHT BRING TO MIND CINDY SHERMAN’S FILM STILLS, BUT HOBSON’S “CINEMASCAPES,” AS HE CALLS THEM, ARE LESS STATIC, FAR MORE LADEN WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR PLOT, AND TO MY EYE FAR MORE INTERESTING THAN SHERMAN’S HIGHLY TOUTED CLICHÉS. WHAT AARON HOBSON SHOWS ME I HAVE NEVER BEFORE SEEN—BUT IN MY MOST DISQUIETING DREAMS.

HIS NEWEST WORK (OF WHICH HEIST IS EXHIBITING… ACCIDENT OUTSIDE THE LOUVRE, LE GRAND CANYON, UNORTHODOX) COMBINES MULTIPLE EXPOSURES TAKEN FROM GOOGLE STREETVIEW TECHNOLOGY TO CREATE AN ALTERNATE REALITY WHILE RETAINING HIS SIGNATURE PANORAMIC STYLE OF CINEMASCAPES.

AARON HOBSON IS AN AMERICAN PHOTOGRAPHER. BORN IN ROCHESTER, NY AND NOW LIVING IN A REMOTE TOWN IN THE ADIRONDACK MOUNTAINS, HOBSON IS PART OF A NEW BREED OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS FINDING PLACES OF INTEREST AND GLIMPSES OF HUMAN LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF GOOGLE STREET VIEW.
