Paintings have been the way of immortalising moments in history for centuries now, with almost every major historical event somehow having been documented on canvas. Camera giant Canon decided that to celebrate World Photography Day they would recreate a significant moment that was never recorded in picture format – working with Columbian historians, Canon diligently re-created the moment that led to Columbia’s independence through taking over 200 pictures of scenes, characters and actors and stitching it together into one “painting”. The resulting image of the breaking of José González Llorente’s vase, which kickstarted the whole revolution, was debuted to the press and to the public at the Colombian Independence Museum, also known as La Casa del Florero, where it became part of the permanent collection.
