Alter Ego: Avatars and Their Creators
Alter Ego: Avatars and Their Creators by photographer Robbie Cooper is an excellent glimpse into the real lives behind the avatars of on-line games. The photographer pairs portraits of the gamers from all over the world with their digital counterparts, often with surprising results, especially in terms of gender and style. Seventy such dual portraits are presented, along with some information about the gamers.
