What is Virtual Tourism ?
“Virtual Tourism” is a series of photographs based on the contemplative practice of gaming. With a camera at my disposal I simply walk into the decor of video games which offer open worlds, I explicitly do this without paying attention to the context (off mission). I wander around these wide digital open spaces, solely to appreciate the work produced by graphic designers and developers. I then start searching for the best spot where I can take a picture with the most suitable view, location, frame and ideal moment. These pictures, which are exclusively focused on landscapes, are a way to keep memory of virtual excursions. They also often reveal empty or “abandoned” areas of the gameplay, places which are usually ignored or neglected by active gamers. Read more
