LAN Party

LAN Party

For some time now, I’ve been working on a photo book called LAN Party. It began as an off-the-cuff joke tweet about wanting a coffee table book full of photos of awkward, Y2K-era teens staging elaborate in-person Counter-Strike and Starcraft battles and the response was enough for me to take the idea to a publisher. The book is now fully funded, though as of this writing you still have ten days to pre-order a copy. I’m immensely grateful to everyone who’s backed the project, contributed photos or stories, and shared it around.

Here are some links to pieces about the project:

I’m not yet sure if there’s going to be a retail release of LAN Party, so if you’re interested in the project then please pre-order a copy before the campaign ends.

If you missed the crowdfunding campaign, you can pre-order a retail copy of LAN Party now at various online retailers.

    Hi, I am Co founder of Drome, first multi day LAN gaming event in the Netherlands (at some point the largest with 2000+ visitors), with events organised from 1996 – 2013. I am also a photographer and have always been interested in it, looking back.. The first photos are analogue, the first digital ones were made with a low res Webcam. Let me know if you’re interested in any of the photos.
