Can Screenshots Also Be Art?

Dead End Thrills is a site about the art of video game screenshots. Not in the way marketing teams use art to lie via bullshot; in the way actual screenshots can use real world photography rules to look amazing.

"Dead End Thrills is a website dedicated to videogame photography", the site's mission statement reads, "an emerging art form that's as far from the average screenshot as it is the average photograph."

It sounds like an easy thing to do, but these guys have a good eye for it and take their time, meaning the results are occasionally gorgeous.

Some examples are in the gallery to your left, while DET's full catalogue can be had at the link below.
