Influential Photographs: Bliss, 1996 by Charles O’ Rear
In the wake of the news that Microsoft no longer supports the Windows XP operating system, people have started to look back at the serene photograph that became iconic for adorning computer screens around the world. However, perhaps, not many know that this famous photograph was shot on film and not digitally manipulated in any way.
Foliage as structure without color.
The game is serious about limiting the color usage, to the point that all the plants are made in white. What’s impressive about it is that it never once struck me as odd, until I saw these photos.
Thanks to arcturusdeluxe for submitting the shots. They write:
These white trees from Mirror’s Edge (2008) always intrigued me. The city planners in that world must be pretty intense if they’re genetically modifying/painting the trees to match the decor.
Considering the army of unseen robots they must have scrubbing the city clean, I’m sure that kind of genetic manipulation is simple enough.
