Thomas Locke Hobbs is an American artist
L.A. Vedute is a book that explores architectural conventions in Los Angeles and points to culture, territory, and proximity relationships. Homes are divided by clear lines of segregation regarding architecture and private space. Though these throughlines between homes are not divisive regarding what Locke Hobbs wishes to illustrate, they speak volumes about how Americans live with one another. The work is typological but in as much as they outline a phenomenon more than a repetition of architecture or a defined object. The book is a fascinating study that bridges the gap between photography and municipal and civic documentation.
Through the episode, Thomas and I discussed many of his projects and travels. I find his work clear-headed, convincing, and intelligent. It was a pleasure to speak with him about the new book and projects like Juliaca, which is a stunning body of work. Please Tune In.
