What was the site with computer-graphic depictions of famous photos?

I'm thinking of some artist who put together graphic renderings (orthogonal?) of various famous news photos -- the King assassination, the Buddhist monk immolating himself in Saigon, the beating of Reginald Denny -- and made them look like stills from computer games. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I like these. What events are depicted in the ones titled hernando, sherman hills, and banks? (I was able to find out about some others, but not these, from various articles about the artist and exhibitions.)

According to the FAQ, the ones you mentioned are renderings of, respectively:
  • James Meredith shot by a sniper on US Highway 51 (Hernando, Mississippi, 1966)
  • Fence to which Matthew Shephard was left to die (Laramie, Wyoming, 1998)
  • "Mary Poppins"
