Benoit Paillé’s exquisite virtual landscape photography

I’m fascinated with this art project by Benoit Paillé based on landscapes in GTA V. I’ve always found virtual landscapes much more intriguing then ‘real’ landscapes. I remember when I started playing Far Cry 3 being gobsmacked at the beauty of the open world terrain, because the ferns and land contours felt so familiar, but filtered through a different consciousness. I found the night scenes and rainstorms curiously compelling, and every time a morepork cried in the dark my heart lurched.
