Creative & Minimalist Paper Art by British Photographer Rich McCor

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:

This photo taken of the balloon installation at Covent Garden reminds me the “Up” animation which is my all time favorite :)

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!
