NAME: Game Boy Camera Photographs

AUTHOR: David Friedman, a photographer based in New York.

DESCRIPTION: When he first got his hand on the Game Boy Camera back in 2000, David Friedman tried it outside and snapped a bunch of pics around Midtown New York. He just rediscovered the photographs and shared them online. The black and white pictures are of course very pixelated but we can still recognize typical New York landmarks such as the Rockefeller Plaza, a Giacometti sculpture at the MoMA or yellow cabs. It appears that David Friedman is a real pioneer as he even took a selfie with the device, more than 10 years ago.

AMUSEMENT RATE: It’s almost hard to believe that these images are real photographs. The resolution of these images is so low that it makes them look like pixel art more than actual reproductions of real life scenes. The Game Boy Camera was so technologically advanced when it was first released 15 years ago but it is now completely obsolete. Hold on to your iPhone 5s, your slo-mo videos are going to look so vintage and cool in 10 years.
