Oddly Elegant Photos of Old-School Kids’ Games Dipped in Monochromatic Paint

New Zealand-born artist and photographer Henry Hargreaves really seems to like dunking iconic items in strange substances — last year, we loved his Deep Fried Gadgets, and now we’re equally charmed by his Game Over! series, which we spotted over at Trendland. In his latest project, he strips classic childhood games of their bright colors and re-imagines them in monochrome, shifting the focus to their strange and often beautiful shapes. Check out some photos from the series after the jump, and then be sure to head on over to Hargreaves’s website to see more of his work.
