“Grand Theft Auto V” Photography Is Unexpectedly Beautiful

Photographer Phil Rose created a Flickr page of Los Santos and Blaine County images, all taken by users on the in-game camera phone.

Phil Rose tells BuzzFeed:

“The scale of the game along with the fact that the camera takes good quality images of the gloriously rendered landscapes leads to a truly satisfying and genuinely photographic experience in which composition, time of day and weather conditions all affect the look of the image.

“I am also glad to be able to show that the horrible, vile, disgusting, misogynistic, barbaric game as painted by the pearl-clutchers can render beauty as well as the dead deer, selfies and crotch shots which admittedly do litter the Rockstar Social site.”
