Check Out This Ex-Game Developer's Terrific Photos of Cops

Antonio Bolfo was an animator at Harmonix, working on video games such as Guitar Hero. Then, with the legacy of September 11 on his mind, he joined the New York Police Department. He started bringing a camera along and snapped photos of the police at work. And then he left the force and made photography his main gig.

The New York Times ran some of his best photos today. Take a look. The work is magnificent.
