Hyper reality

The layers between reality, truth, simulation and fantasy inspired Robbie Cooper to document people and their digital personas who play global virtual games in his Alter Ego series. He traveled from Korea, USA, France to China capturing people and their avatars and the worlds they inhabit. His book called Alter Ego: Avatars and their Creators is available here. Visit his site and blog to find out more about his work and projects.

Another one of his projects is entitled Immersion, where he explores people's interaction with screens. Working with an Art Director and photographer, he filmed kids playing video games in the USA and UK. The shots are fabulous and oddly haunting.
