Foreign Virtual Worlds — Virtual Travel Photography

I love traveling through virtual spaces, which I’ve been exploring more and more frequently lately also by means of virtual photography  — that’s why I like to call it travel photography. Here are a few photographs from these virtual digital worlds, created directly with the camera in the game — in this case No Mans Sky — and mostly cropped to portrait format. The title “Binary Voids” points to the virtual, digital, as well as to its relevance for — and influence on — the real world: emptiness — voids — non-voids — nothingness … and yes, I admit that I’m indulging a little bit my weakness for science fiction here. A few thoughts and further information about virtual photography I collect in my notebook. If you like, follow along my ingame photography on Instagram  @binary.voids.
