Capturing Gamers’ game faces.

February 9, 2011

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. ”

Shot in 2002, the series reveals all kinds of emotional responses that we have while playing games; anger, joy, frustration, surprise, and more.

The entire series can be seen here.
