Jonathan Hobin is an award winning and internationally noted photo-based artist from Canada. Hobin’s work draws from iconic literary, cinematic and historical references and popular culture to explore the darker aspects of childhood, storytelling and politics.

Features on Hobin’s work have appeared in major media including CNN, BBC, CBC as well as art publications such as Beaux Arts (France), Art Das Kunstmagazin (Germany) and the Photographers Companion (China). Hobin was also the Canadian production designer for the first Slovenian/Canadian film coproduction, The Maiden Danced to Death (2010), collaboration with Academy Award-winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond.
