Bliss is the most viewed image in the world. It was the default desktop wallpaper that came supplied with Windows XP. Shot by photographer Charles “Chuck” O’Rear, it was created on the way to visit his girlfriend. That was 21 years ago. Now, Chuck is at it again creating some more desktop wallpaper. This time for a different platform and company.
Commissioned by the airline Lufthansa, Chuck was tasked with shooting “the next generation of wallpapers”. Titled New Angles of America, the images from this project ones are aimed to fit the screen we look at most often today. Our mobile phones.
