Breakfast at Honey & Co., Warren Street
British photographer Rich McCor, aka Paperboyo, reshapes most well-known landmarks all around the world – just by using paper cutouts & a camera !
When I discovered his work through his Instagram account, I was really inspired by how McCor remodelled the most iconic places in a minimalist and innovative way. He reflects his imagination through paper cutouts that are just “at the right place at the right time” – making it possible to capture amazing photographs. He is able to provide a completely new perspective with a “less is more” philosophy.
As I mentioned he takes photographs combined with paper art all around the world in different cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Lisbon and so on, however his work is based in London.
It was really hard to choose from the incredible photographs but here are some of my favorites among the ones in London:
And finally these two Christmassy works are part of the recent “Meet Me Under the Mistletoe” installation in Covent Garden.
P.S: McCor also started a creative project recently at Kickstarter that you can check here. After getting a lot of positive feedback and attention from people all around the world and most important newspapers and magazines such as BBC, National Geographic and Timeout, he decided to start this project in order to give people a chance to create their own transforming photographs, by using his custom-made creative paper cutout kits. Be sure to check out the project and support it!
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post :)
It’s impossible to not feel Christmassy in London at this time of the year :) If you’ve already started to get into the Christmas spirit as well, or want to, then you should definitely not miss Warner Bros. Studio Tour’s special Christmas makeover “Hogwarts in the Snow”.
I’ve had the chance to visit the tour twice, and even without the makeover it was truly an amazing experience. Being able to closely observe all of the objects, costumes, places and other props used in the films was so exciting, and I actually felt like I was in a completely different world. But I must say that with all of the Christmas decorations and the festive spirit, everything was even more magical. So I strongly recommend visiting “Hogwarts in the Snow”, as Harry Potter and Christmas are definitely a perfect match :)
“Hogwarts in the Snow” event is running until 31st January, so there’s time to visit but I think it would be best to book tickets as soon as possible! For more information, visit www.wbstudiotour.co.uk
