8-bitscapes - Personal Project

"These thought provoking images re-imagine well loved, iconic, and retro digital characters in real life scenarios. Framing them forever as they munch, invade, race, battle and bleep their way around planet EARTTTTTHHHHHH!!" If you'd like to find out more about the project then please head on over to the main website.. http://www.8-bitscapes.com.

8-bitscapes is a concept I conceived with the help of photographer, Kevin Rozario-Johnson. Kev shot the 'reality', and I 'released’ the characters into their new realistic environments..

Diabond aluminium prints available to buy..
So far we have produced a series of 11 limited edition prints, available to buy in 2 main formats. An affordable £50 window mounted photographic print, and the beautiful, hard edged perfectly flat and sharp, matt sealed aluminium diabond prints. The diabonds require no frame, and appear to float in front of the wall.
