Amusing Portraits of Kids Playing Videogames

We’ve admired Robbie Cooper’s fascinating photographs of gamers and their avatars before. This time, the artist aims his lens at children while lost in the virtual world of their favorite videogames. The head-on portraits show several zombified, hilarious, and eerily calm expressions. The images are reminiscent of that feeling you get when you catch your reflection in passing, or hear your own recorded voice for the first time. It’s interesting to note that the children in Cooper’s body of work are far more composed than the adults in Phillip Toledano’s portraits that capture the same moment — perhaps proving that we were more sane when pint-sized. Check out the images below in our gallery.
