Clever Paper Cutouts by Paperboyo Transform Architecture and Landmarks into Amusing Scenes

Rich McCor (aka Paperboyo) has an uncanny ability to see the quirky and fun in existing structures. The Brighton-based artist and photographer (previously) creates amusing scenes with precise angles and black paper cutouts, using tourist attractions, landmarks, and urban settings as backdrops: the Arc de Triomphe transforms into a massive LEGO figure, an upside down shot of Regent Street transforms into a boat canal, and the King’s Place facade functions as individual swimming lanes. McCor travels a lot to photograph his temporary silhouettes, but in recent months he’s been concentrating on local areas. Next up are the Netherlands, New York, and Taipei.
