This book set out not to answer the question of video games causing violence in modern youth, but to try and raise another side of the story for consideration. I tried to achieve this by through mixing the real and the computer generated, humourous images in with dark images and letting the reader explore the concept and hopefully draw their own conclusions on the subject. Thanks to everyone who gave me clothes and props, as well their time to be photographed, and the time to help me edit the images to their final presentation

    "“When the pin is pulled…" Review" “When the pin is pulled…” is a photobook which doesn’t try to tackle the issue regarding videogame violence and its influence on youth culture, instead it attempts to present a combination of light and dark images on the subject for consideration. Using a combination of double-page spreads and single page images, coupled with quotes, which relate to military tactics and ideals, this book pairs the photographers work with stills taken from a ‘first person shooter’ game. The stances in the photographs clearly mirror the actions shown in the games, displaying the potential influence this type of game can have on people in the real world, however, the more sinister images are counterbalanced with more light-hearted ones, leaving the viewer to contemplate the nature of the issue. The minimal use of text allows for a fluid transition between images and the book as a whole keeps interest through altering page formats towards the end. It... More > reads quite quickly at first and this allows for a second look at some of the more powerful and thought provoking images, which works well in achieving the photographer’s aim of presenting the issue and then allowing for independent evaluation on the part of the viewer. The straightforward presentation used in this book and the inclusion of humorous and more controversial photographs makes this photobook appealing and questioning at the same time without forcing any opinions upon the reader with regards to the subject matter. Overall this book has been constructed in a way which allows for a simple viewing of the photographs contained, or an engaging analysis of how serious the issue of violent videogames influencing the youth of today really is.< Less
