GTAV Fan Pics: Innovative Photography Projects, Adventures of the r/GTAA Subreddit & More

Posted on April 18 2014, 8:51am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Games

In this week’s round up of awesome fan pics and Snapmatic wizardry, check out some truly inventive GTAV photography projects, as well as the continuing photoshoot adventures of the prolific r/GTAA (GTA Adventures) subreddit.

As always, if you've got something great that you think deserves recognition here at the Newswire, make sure to send it our way via Mouthoff and follow us at for all the latest official pics.

Crossroads of Reality is an innovative GTAV photography project by Quebec artist Benoit Paillé (who also made that hypnotic 'Hyper Timelapse' video recently featured here at the Newswire), blurring the line between real world still life photography and the virtual atmosphere of Los Santos. In the words of Paillé, "The photographic performance of this project is to overlay a material reality with a virtual one, erasing the border between the two worlds. It is a response to the proliferation of visual projects that take place in virtual spaces. It is a questioning about the notion of border and territory. A mix of two distinct realities into a single image. I want to show that we can use a virtual space in conceptual photography and approach these areas with the same sensitivity as the physical space." Very cool stuff and the results, as you can see above, are stunning. To learn more about his process, check out full digital installation at Behance and watch the documentary on Vimeo.

Also making innovations with GTAV photography is blogger and artist, Stoic Decay who stitched together Snapmatic photos to create these striking panoramas with a fish eye lens effect. Click the images above to appreciate them in high-res.

And now check out just a few of the incredible photoshoot productions of the r/GTAA (GTA Adventures) subreddit (aka the GTAAdventures Crew on Social Club), who've been challenging each other to recreate some of their favorite scenes from movies, TV shows, album covers and more. Here, they epically stage the final scene from Gone in 60 Seconds (2000) and posted to Reddit an impressive frame-by-frame comparison.

Recently featured at Kotaku and jokingly dubbed Park Side of the Moon by commenter LiteralPhilosopher, P1zzaBagels from r/gtaa takes car art to another dimension in honor of Pink Floyd.

Even the Little Miss Sunshine poster gets the GTA Online photoshoot treatment. GTAA redditor, Kyle_Skinner was kind enough to share some of the fun behind the scenes moments from the making of this well-synched shot.

Lightning struck at least twice here as both lemurdecatta of the Vice City Crime Mob and r/GTAA's Kyle Skinner suited up to take on a Tarantino classic. The redditors even played out the tip scene in the comments as a bonus. 

We've seen a few well-played recreations of the iconic Beatles' Abbey Road album cover - above is a great version shared on Instagram by  mrrauf_98 aka VelievRauf of the Lastalay Crew - and also check out Decimation_Jones' modern take and P1zzaBagels' accurate depiction.
