Robert Overweg – Photographs of Virtual Reality





“Robert Overweg is a photographer in virtual world environments. These environments appear in first and third person shooter games but Overweg see’s them operating as a direct extension of his physical world, revealing the new public space of contemporary society.

Overweg proceeds to the outskirts of the virtual world which he dissects through his photography. In doing so, he draws our attention to environments that are often overlooked and yet ironically appear eerily familiar.”
