“Yeah man, the universe is like so ginormous that when you take a second think about it… we’re like all claustrophobic,” famed photographer David Hockney once said when asked about his ground-breaking work in the genre of claustrophotography.

Prepare to be taken behind the lenses (and sometimes lens caps) of the best Claustrophotographic artists in the field today.
