At the beginning of the month a modder from Finland updated a program that lets players of the 2015 game The Division take jaw-dropping screenshots. On Tuesday of this week, just over a week later, he was informed by the game’s publisher that he’s been banned from the game forever.
Screenshot artist Andy Cull, whose work we featured last month on Kotaku, is part of a group called Infinite Lives. In this post, you’ll find some “screenshots” from their efforts that represent “the best in video game portraiture”, using a game as the foundation to express photographic art through.
Horizon Zero Dawn comes packed with a robust photo mode that you can access any time you pause, and boy, are people taking advantage of it.
Kotaku reader Bartosz Hołoszkiewicz—aka Renton Holmes—is also a professional photographer, and he recently took a series of terrific shots of some Street Fighter V players at a tournament.
This is the work of Masashi Wakui. He takes pictures of Tokyo and makes them look like they’re background stills from the coolest anime you’ve never seen.
Jason Laboy was getting ready for his next shot, in the alleyway he had specifically chosen for this occasion. He had his subjects—an impressive looking Batman, Nightwing, and Spider-Man, to name a few. Just then, a passerby walked into the shot, undid his pants, and started taking a piss on the alley wall.
You ever wonder what Spider-Man gets up to in Cairo? He takes the train, does his laundry, and enjoys a good smoke.
Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in Kyoto. These past few weeks have been spectacular. It really makes you want to visit a scenic Buddhist temple and perhaps take photos to immortalize your visit. Thing is, at some temples, you can't.
"I've spent a few days inside the body of an angry Hugh Jackman-lookalike." Time commissioned award-winning photojournalist Ashley Gilbertson, known for covering the Iraq War, to use Photo Mode in The Last of Us Remastered to document the game's events in his own way.

Photographer Pavel Vesnakov is trying something cool: a blending of screenshots and real-world photography techniques to create images that are very different to what you'd normally see coming out of a game.
Give people the power to stage their own screenshots, as The Last of Us: Remastered does, and something magical happens. Artistic, even.
Photographer David Friedman recently unearthed a set of beautiful black-and-white photos of New York City that he had taken in 2000. The only difference between these shots and the stunning higher-resolution ones available on his professional website? He captured all of the former shots with his Game Boy Camera.
No matter where you are in the world, you can count on one thing: kids love to have fun and play with toys.
Grand Theft Auto IV may be almost six years old, but its age doesn't stop folks from doing all sorts of amazing stuff with it. Take, for example, this excellent noire "walkabout series" by gaming's best screenshot artist, Dead End Thrills. The game looks gorgeous like this, no?
Shinjuku Station in Tokyo is the busiest train station in the world. And this video brings it to life with haunting beauty.
