Scott Hinton spends a majority of his time in the basin and range working on various photographic projects that explore an evolving landscape.
Starting in 1996, Hinton began using the 360-degree panoramic image to document what he calls the "Constructed Landscape" of northern California and western Nevada. Similar to a map, Hinton's panoramic photographs present a landscape at a specific time in history. These panoramic photographs are geographical studies of a human constructed landscape in a state of flux. In addition to Hinton's panoramic study of the Western landscape, he has been collaborating on a project documenting the Santa Clara River and multiple photographic projects around Lake Tahoe.
