Photographer Pays Tribute To 2D Platform Games In Photo Shoot
Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund has created a series of photos that pays tribute to classic 2D platform games.
Called ‘Honkey Kong’, Åslund shot these photos while in Hong Kong, as part of an advertising campaign for shoe brand Jim Rickey.
According to Åslund, the goal of the project was to do a “tribute to classic 2D platform games and integrate the person with the street scenes”.
His whimsical photos were shot from above using a tele lens, making the images appear flat—creating the feeling of the model navigating the streets on a 2D plane.
