Photo Mode Collection: Unforgettable Characters

A community photo album celebrating 10 years of The Last of Us’ iconic characters

Over the last 10 years, our team has consistently been moved by all the ways you have shared how much of an impact the characters of The Last of Us have had on you. With that in mind, for the second of our Photo Mode challenges celebrating The Last of Us’ 10th anniversary, it only felt right to ask our talented virtual photography community to submit images highlighting the unique personalities of The Last of Us’ characters.

And, of course, you did not disappoint, with so many incredible photos submitted capturing the essence of Joel, Ellie, Abby, and beyond. It’s beautiful to see everything from Ellie’s bright, playful spirit to the subtle pain behind Marlene’s stare represented in your submissions. It’s always difficult to choose our favorites, but the 15 images below truly show the emotional range and complexities of each character, and your talents of highlighting them through Photo Mode.

The featured submissions above are done by: @Ziggy_Princess_, @Ilyas_BenHaddou, @ElektroVP, @Sided_dice, @amich_vp, @cristiandrakeYT, @Marco_Salva01VP, @dpruttz_vp, @TakaSanGames, @playpausephoto, @Kiddo274, @PhotoInGame, @Thibzz180, @GSMind89, and @Skiae_.

As you can see, you all showed Ellie a lot of love in this challenge. We saw so many amazing shots of her, it was hard to pick just a few. You also showed up in a big way for our expansive cast, capturing great moments of Lev, Yara, and Marlene. You always rise to the challenge and it’s so much fun for us to see your creativity!

We want to offer a huge thank you to everyone who submitted their incredible work for this Photo Mode challenge. If you don’t see your shots represented in this round, don’t worry! There will be more chances to be featured soon as we continue celebrating 10 years of The Last of Us! Keep an eye on our Twitter and Instagram to participate in our next themed community challenge. Or, if you can’t wait to see more of our community’s stunning virtual photography work, check out our previous Photo Mode blog celebrating the 10th anniversary of TLOU.

If you’re feeling as nostalgic as we are reflecting back on the past decade, you can play The Last of Us Part I today on PlayStation 5 or on PC via Steam or Epic Games Store. And, The Last of Us Part II is available on PlayStation 4.
