The Coolest 2D Video Game On Earth Is Hong Kong


After visiting a friend in Hong Kong, Swedish photographer Christian Åslund thought the streets below looked like the best video game he had never played. The result is this tribute to 2D gaming.

According to website Hong Wrong, to make the landscape appear flat, Åslund shot from above, using a telephoto lens. Often while laying in the streets of Hong Kong, he coordinated with friends above via walkie-talkie and kept post-processing to a minimum.

The name of this series of photos? Why “Honkey Kong”.
