Hometowns is a photo series, put together by London-based photographer John MacLean, that pays homage to a number of great artists by depicting the towns in which they were raised. MacLean traveled around the world -- everywhere from William Eggleston's Summer, Mississippi to Wassily Kandisky's Moscow -- and juxtaposed each homestead that he found with the aesthetic peculiarities of the artists themselves.

Interestingly, each home was depicted and projected not just as it stands today but also how it must have stood years and years ago when seen through the young eyes of the children who would grow up to become his artistic idols.

Indeed Hometowns is an unconventional but effective tribute to the artists that shaped MacLean's visions.
