VIDEO GAMES VS REAL LIFE SERIES:
A mash-up of video game characters and photographic scenes. As a kid I would become completely immersed in these crude pixel environments and they would seem very real. I thought it would be fun to try to express how gamers see these worlds. I spent many hours gaming with my siblings and friends when I was growing up and this aesthetic has really come to represent that time.
