Reconceptualizing reality... using paper!

A young Londoner Rich McCor, reconceptualized reality with the help of paper. He travels the world portraying in an original way the most famous sites and transforms them simply using a cut-out! We have put together a list of his cool transformations. Which one is your favourite?

Rich said: 'My favourite cut out so far is the bottle of champagne at the fountains near Tower Bridge. It took about 50 snaps until I got the right angle, depth of field and timing'.

'Some of the cut outs are pretty basic so don't take too long but for the tricky ones I'll just put on my headphones and crack on with it. (...) It's incredibly therapeutic, although at times it's equally tedious'.

'I would love to somehow make this hobby into a career, and if it involves travelling to places to shoot these images then that would be a dream come true.'
