Aaron Hobson lives a quiet life in a small town in the remote Adirondack Mountains. He brings a wonderful imagination and cinematic approach to his work, but recently he’s been creating work without a camera and from the comfort of his computer chair. His new series, Google Street View Edition, uses Google’s amazing technology to travel the world finding breathtaking vistas and quiet street scenes.
In search of enchanted and remote lands typically only reserved for the eyes of it’s inhabitants, but now are captured on camera by the automated and aesthetically-neutered google street view cars that linger.
Void of the main character (self-portrait) and an internal view, these images represent the closing chapter of 4 years of cinemascapes with an external view of the world.
