    Vincent Glielmi: The Con

Convention goers captured with consummate skill by Vincent Glielmi

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

I’ve never had the chance to attend a convention, but I imagine them to be packed with people in incredible replica costumes competing about their love for said comic or video game. Photographer Vincent Glielmi sheds a different light on the people that take part in these events, with the stark contrast between their costumes and the environments surrounding them (the lady in orange is cracking me up). Either posing for a portrait, or doing ordinary things like chatting on the phone – it’s not what you expect from these hardcore fans. It’s that same feeling when you see a famous person doing their food shopping – apparently they are ordinary people too!
