Capturing Gamers’ game faces.
Mr. Tolendano is a photographer who has had his work in various large press publications as GQ, le Monde and more, has created and shot a series of portraits of gamers while in throws of playing games. In his own words :
“I’ve never been very interested in straightforward portrait photography. I often feel that it reveals nothing other than the photographer’s intentions, and a topographic record of the effects of time.But what of hidden emotions and feelings? Characteristics that are usually secreted from the world? How do we record those? I wondered if there was a way to unconsciously tease out aspects of people’s personality, and capture it on film. So I had them play video games. “
