Pixels and Polaroids by Jherin Miller is a photo series that turns people into 8-bit characters while leaving the background unchanged. The result is a strange world where retro gaming characters walk the streets.

Many of the photos feature younger people who appear to be loitering and skateboarding. One skater is captured in mid-air as he does a kick-flip, and the result looks like it was taken from a real video game when put in 8-bit form.

Pixels and Polaroids is a supreme piece of mash-up art because it takes two things that one would never think to put together and smashes them into one with great results. If you're looking for gaming characters with a retro feel, this series is a great start! Stats for Vintage 8-Bit Captures Trending: Older & Chilly
