“Robbie Cooper’s compelling portraits of adolescents playing video games, which appeared last November in The New York Times Magazine, are part of an ambitious and unusual project called Immersion. A former photojournalist, Cooper plans to film hundreds of adults and children as they immerse themselves in movies, TV programs and video games.”

I find this project really interesting and yes, a bit humorous. The photos are taken from the television or computer screen they are playing or watching from, which makes the facial expressions extrememly genuine.
