An associated art form to board games is the wonderful world of photography. In a time where social spaces online drive board game buzz – game photography has become an valuable and common sight. Pictures of games can bring out a different perspective on the game – staging meeples and game components for a beautiful shot.
I like to make a shoot where you can feel en see something like Terra Mystica and Settlers of Catan which have a lot of components, colors, shapes.
One photographer I have come across is the talented Henk Rolleman from Eemdijk near Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I’ve asked Henk some questions about photography of games.
