Focused on the Game

PHILLIP TOLEDANO STARTED SHOOTING PICTURES AT THE AGE OF 11, when he convinced his parents to buy him a camera. Creative kid and wonderful parents! I first became aware of Mr. Toledano’s wonderful photographs through the book
PHONESEX, published by Twin Palms Press. There, he convinced actual phone sex operators to allow themselves to be photographed, peering inside the private world of those who satisfy others through anonymous conversation.

So, what are these photographs of? People in the throes of passion? Well, yes... sort of. Toledano photographed people in the middle of playing video games.

According to Toledano: “Everything should start with an idea. Whether it be a single image, or a series, I believe that a photograph should be like an unfinished sentence. There should be a space for questions.” I wish I had written this. It’s everything I believe about a photograph as well.

I wanna see the phone sex photos, too. I bet they're less animated than the gamers.

Fabulous stuff.
