Hobo, far from home
Imagined in 2002 on a chairlift in Whistler, British Columbia and created shortly thereafter, Hobo is now based in Paris and Vancouver. Hobo has a wayfaring storyline and through collections of in-depth interviews, photos and essays, stays on the side of the outsiders, the dreamers, those who don’t play the obvious game, and is also, ultimately, a portrait of the personal interests and lives of its editors and contributors. By showing reverence to the beauty of the natural world, and implicitly suggesting a return to a way of life more in tune with nature, the magazine thereby hopefully also promotes the preservation of wild spaces. With every issue, Hobo offers free advertising space to select, hands-on conservation and wildlife foundations such as the David Suzuki Foundation, Sea Legacy, WWF, Vital Ground and Pacific Wild. Contributing photographers include: Juergen Teller, Paul Nicklen, Terry Richardson, Ryan McGinley, Cass Bird, David Armstrong, Hedi Slimane, Anton Corbijn, Theo Wenner, Mark Borthwick, Drew Jarrett, Shawn Dogimont, Ari Marcopoulos, Quentin de Briey and Bernard Plossu.
Past covers have included: Viggo Mortensen, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Naomi Watts, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe, Christopher Walken, Michelle Williams, Robin Wright, Harmony Korine, Nick Cave, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Adam Driver and Isabelle Huppert.
