Hobson has a pretty unique style, constructing what look like stills from movies. But they’re not ordinary movies. They have a really sexy yet dark feel about them. Other writers have likened them to something David Lynch might come up with, and I can certainly see why.
Born in 1977, Hobson makes no secret of the fact that his project, which started in 2007, has been inspired by what sounds like a tough-as-nails childhood and early teenage years.
“I’ve had my back fractured by baseball bats, been beaten up, did way too many drugs before I was 14 and I dropped out of High School in the 10th grade,” he writes on his website.
“Cinemascapes are a visual journal of those times.”
Many of the images in Hobson’s project hit hard. Some make little sense, but in a way that makes sense when you consider the turmoil of his early years. Others are stunning to view, mesmerising and thought provoking.
Check them out for yourself. If you’re a lover of great photographs, and great imagination, you won’t be disappointed.
