Photos: Kotama Bouabane “This is How You Die”

Kotama Bouabane is a local artist and educator (OCAD & York) working on a new series titled, “This is how you die”. Kotama turned to Underworld LARP in order find players to work with – capturing them pretending to die or be wounded in battle. He creates portraits in open landscapes, as well as close-up images of characters’ faces lying prone on the ground.

Working with both photo and video media, Kotama has taken portraits at an anime convention in Montreal that you can see on his website under “Meisai” here. He is also working with Bicolline LARP in Quebec.

Here are a selection of images that he shot with a Human Ranger (Brandon) and the Savar Matriarch Mal’nen (Jocelyn).
