Making Art From Video Game Landscapes
Justin Berry is just one of the “photographers” documenting meticulously-designed video game environments:

"When you make those settings, a lot of times the textures are from photographs. So there’s this weird thing where I’m taking a photograph, but what I’m really photographing is a series of other photographs that have been wrapped around polygons."
He continues: “In virtual worlds, we behave as if they’re these vacant playgrounds that have no value. We kill people, we rob them, we don’t worry about it because it’s virtual. At the same time, the virtual world is becoming more and more closely related to the real world.”
