Amazing Altered Google Street View Landscapes

Photographer Aaron Hobson lives in small town in the remote Adirondack Mountains and is afraid of flying. His projects are intentionally cinematic, but none as much as his Cinemascapes series. For hours, he travels. He drags himself along a road after road, through town after town of Google Street View, searching for that perfect, lingering scene accidentally captured “by the automated and aesthetically-neutered street view cars.” He digitally alters these captures with a little Photoshop “dodge and burn” or a drop of ethereal hue or shadow. See the “enchanted and remote lands typically only reserved for the eyes of it’s inhabitants” in our gallery and commence wanderlust.
