Photo Collages That Show the 4 Seasons with 1 Million Photos Each

There’s no shortage of interesting work coming from Shin Seung Back and Kim Yong Hun of Seoul, South Korea. Yesterday we posted an interesting body of work that employed the use of computer algorithms to detect facial structures in the clouds above. The duo has another project that caught our eye: one that shares a representation of the four seasons — with a twist.

Shin Seung Back and Kim Yong Hun have gone about an interesting method of combining a million images to create just one representation of a season. The project, not surprisingly called ‘A Million Seasons,’ involved the collection of one million photos tagged with spring, summer, autumn, and winter on Flickr.

Color Averaging Process

Each of those pictures was then converted to one pixel, with the color of that pixel representing the average color of the image collected. The final result? One image, composed of one million pixels, that represent each of the seasons.

Spring

Summer

Autumn

Winter

Differentiating the Spring and Summer picture may be tricky, but you can clearly see the differences between the Autumn’s orange-and-red and Winter’s lighter colors.
