The Art of In-Game Photography talk + Shooting Virtual Cities: In-Game Photography Workshop

The Art of In-Game Photography, talk with Gareth Damian Martin and Rachel Falconer.

date: 7 July 2018, 12:00,
location: The Photographers’ Gallery, London

Video games present a new territory for photographers, one where the real and the virtual are in constant flux. The spaces created within them are as much places to be explored and experienced as they are entertainment and have given rise to the art form of ‘in-game photography’.

This talk introduces some of the photographic techniques applied by artists to the virtual environment and architecture within games and how their practice fits within a tradition of conceptual photographic work, with reference to photographers such as Thomas Demand and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Artist and writer Gareth Damian Martin presents his work and is joined by digital art curator Rachel Falconer in a discussion of these innovative approaches.

Shooting Virtual Cities: In-Game Photography Workshop, by Gareth Damien Martin

date: 7 July 2018, 14:30-17:30
location: The Photographers’ Gallery, London

Working under the guidance of game photographer Gareth Damian Martin, this workshop gives participants the opportunity to create images that respond to and build upon game environments.

Documenting the city of Los Santos from the game Grand Theft Auto V, participants will work in small groups to produce a portfolio of work that responds to a specific area of the city, and in doing so learn about both game photography as well as ways of seeing, manipulating and documenting game worlds.

This workshop is aimed at both photographers interested in exploring photographic practice in games, those curious about game worlds and in-game photography, as well as those interested in exploring new approaches to street and urban photography.

Participants should bring their own devices to take photographs. No prior experience is necessary.
