For another “Frivolous Friday” edition of the blog, I came across photographer Robbie Cooper‘s work called ” Immersion”. Here are a few photos from the collection:
So what exactly do the pictures portray? Cooper took photos of kids immersed in various video games and you can see how focused they are. If you’ve ever played a video game of any kind (and my sister will attest to a sore lip all because she stuck her tongue out during an entire afternoon of Super Mario), you’ll know that it is not only body language that gets used. Facial expressions are also high on the list and Cooper captures it brilliantly. You can see more of the photos here, as they appeared in a feature for the New York Times. Keep in mind that some of the work that Cooper does is VERY controversial, but this collection of photos is brilliant. You’ll get a chuckle out of them.
