When the Swiss Federal Council released its official photo for 2017 on New Year’s Eve it caused quite a stir, becoming a trending topic in Switzerland on Twitter.

Taken by photographer Beat Mumenthaler, the striking black and white composition provoked comparisons with everything from Fifty Shades of Grey to the cover of the album With the Beatles to the video for Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
