The photographer subculture inside Fallout, GTA and Left 4 Dead — Hopes&Fears — flow "Video Games"
"Karl "Illsnapmatix" Smith was walking through a homeless community underneath the light rail tracks in a place called Strawberry when he spotted something. Lit in silhouette by the dying light, just barely visible, a man sat alone against a wall with a bottle in his hand. Smith pulled out his camera and, in his words, "caught this gentleman having a quiet drink." It's a snapshot of life on the edge, but it's not real. All of it happened in a video game.

Smith was playing Grand Theft Auto V, and the photo he snapped was taken with his character's smartphone. GTA V is unusual among games in that it presents its players with all of the limitations of real photography, transplanted onto the virtual space. You can't take a photo of something unless your character can see it, and you can only shoot from positions and angles that he or she can reach. You're restricted by the capabilities of your run-of-the-mill virtual smartphone, which comes equipped with basic zooming and Instagram-like filters, and by the physical abilities of your avatar.

Smith is one of many virtual photographers focused on capturing life in the bits and bytes of GTA V. Most take pictures of pimped-out cars in the persistent online mode where they can meet and hang out with like-minded players. Some pretend to be photojournalists documenting the perpetual violence on the streets of Los Santos. Others, like Smith, work more like street photographers. Photos are shared on Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, developer Rockstar's Social Club, and Imgur. Smith posts his photos on his own website, where he occasionally also interviews other GTA V photographers."

Here, Ansel! Sit, Avedon! -
"It was in 2007 that Juergen Perthold, an engineer living in Anderson, S.C., strapped a tiny camera of his own design to the collar of his cat, Mr. Lee. When the images Mr. Lee captured while roaming around their neighborhood were posted online, they went, predictably, viral. Mr. Lee received a flurry of attention from the international media and became the star of a documentary, “CatCam: The Movie,” which made the film festival rounds in 2012 and even won a few awards.

Mr. Perthold has since refined his tiny camera, which was designed to record video or still photographs at programmable intervals, and has sold nearly 5,000 to pet owners in 35 countries, many of whom send their images back to Mr. Perthold, who displays them on his website. For Mr. Lee is not the only pet photographer, and his CatCam is not the only pet-oriented photographic device.

Last week, GoPro, a camera company made famous by surfers and other athletes who clip on its waterproof miniature Heros to record their adventures, introduced its own version: Fetch, a harness and camera mount designed for dogs. For years, pet owners had been rigging Heros to attach to their pets; perhaps you’ve seen the YouTube video of that surfing pig? (GoPro, a 10-year-old company that enjoyed a stunning I.P.O. in June, couldn’t say how many Heros have been used “off-label” in this way, but it did share its 2013 revenue: $985 million, up from $150,000 a decade ago. And GoPro’s spokesman was quick to remind this reporter that last year Americans spent nearly $60 billion on their pets.)

As programmable digital cameras get smaller and cheaper, the universe of pet, uh, journalism — or is it fine art? — has exploded. Scientists on both sides of the Atlantic have been using these technologies to learn more about the habits of all manner of animals, including house cats. The work of Leo, a cat from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, has been made into a poster. Cooper, from Seattle, has had a gallery show of his work, which has also been collected into a book. A collaborative (what else to call them?) of Swiss cows posts their oeuvre at

Inevitably, copyright disputes have arisen over who exactly owns the images taken by nonhumans. As The Washington Post and others reported last month, David Slater, a British photographer whose camera was snatched up and passed around by macaque monkeys while he was in Indonesia in 2011, has been sparring with various media outlets, including Wikimedia, over their use of the winsome “selfie” one monkey shot with Mr. Slater’s camera."

Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1944–2013 | International Center of Photography
"Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1944–2013 is a major survey of photographic movements in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela. Taking the "mutant," morphing, and occasionally chaotic Latin American city as its focus, the exhibition draws particularly on street photography's depictions of the city during decades of political and social upheaval. It is divided into sections that explore public space as a platform for protest, popular street culture, the public face of poverty, and other characteristics of the city as described in photographs. Dispensing with arbitrary distinctions between genres of photography—art photography, photojournalism, documentary—Urbes Mutantes points to the depth and richness of the extensive photographic history of the region.

Drawn from the collection of Leticia and Stanislas Poniatowski, the exhibition was first shown at the Museo de Arte del Banco de la República in Bogota in 2013. It was co-curated by Alexis Fabry and María Wills, and is accompanied by a bilingual catalogue published by Toluca Editions."
