Landscape photography is one of the better ways to sink into a new place, with its focus on detail and wider ability to bring you into the feeling behind one snapshot in time. Aaron Hobson is a master at constructing photos of this kind, having won several awards for his cinemascape panoramic photos.
In a new series, he uses Google Street View snapshots to create narratives, eerie portraits of the world as as we know it. Example, the photo below from Saint-Nicolas-de-la-Grave, in France – it’s not your usual Google map!
For the full series of photos, check out Aaron’s gallery here. It’s well worth a few minutes of your long weekend.
