The Human Landscape

Bruce Zinger

Images of Opera Atelier’s performances illustrate the ethereal nature of the live theatre experience. The photograph is the only record of what the audience has experienced. Inspired by the lighting and composition of Renaissance masters, Zinger’s images for Opera Atelier have followed that main aesthetic: dramatic lighting, deep contrast, and a rich colour palette. Often simple in its design, the thematic illustration of each opera is portrayed in a single dynamic image.
