Fighting Game Pros, But Not As You Think

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.

These images, of some of the players taking part in the Capcom Pro Tour Premier at DreamHack Summer 2016, are, well, beautiful. Unless you're a proper fan, we normally only see top members of the FGC in YouTube or Twitch videos, hunched over chairs in dimly-lit halls. These portraits are bright, stark and very human; I love how despite every shot looking like something from a fancy coffee table magazine about disillusioned rock stars most couldn't resist the urge to smile for the camera.

You can check out the full series on Bartosz's site.
