I understand you. I really do. This world, we’re currently living in, is boring. Totally boring. You’ve got your 9 to 5 job, your wife, your kids, your video games, your junk food. But deep in your heart, you wanna go on an adventure. Fight for something you love. Experience new worlds, new universes. Find some gold, some creatures, some honor. Some magic. I understand you. I really do.
German photographer Boris Leist studied Social Science and German Studies, and now he follows people that are a part of the live action role-playing game community around. What’s that, you may ask. It’s where you transform yourself into zombies, elves, or dark knights. Into mermaids, orcs, or dwarves. Into hunters, survivors, or clowns. You can be everything you want to be.
Boris made a book out of his photos. “The players in this book create characters, which, ideally, have the power to blend out the modern world and one’s own social surroundings,” he tells us. “Liberated from customary structures, rules, and conditions, they immerse themselves and move about in an alien world. The fantasy and creativity of the players are the prime focus here, and one is simultaneously invited to embark on an intensive, fantastical and at times monstrous journey.” You can support the book right here.
