Flowers Replace Guns in Historic Photo Collages by Blick

French creative Blick creates historic photo collages where large colorful flowers replace guns and other objects. The juxtaposition between the two source materials is immense, with the beautiful flowers contrasting greatly with the monochrome images of men in the clutches of war.

Most of the images you’ll see here are among the most iconic photos from the World War II era. Most will recognize Soldiers Raising Flag on Iwo Jima or Soldiers Wading Through Jungle Stream, and realize that the photos have been altered. By using such widely recognized images, Blick assures that anyone viewing will understand his message and examine the question of what has been replaced and why.
