Rich McCor (aka Paperboyo) has a way of imagining the potential for bizarre and bizarre in existing architecture. The Brighton-based artist and photographer (before) invents amusing scenes that he creates with precise angles and black silhouette: the Arc de Triomphe playfully transforms into a giant LEGO figure, an upside-down shot of Regent Street becomes a boat canal and the King’s Place facade functions as individual swimming lanes. McCor often travels a long way to photograph his temporary silhouettes, although he has been focusing on local regions in recent months. The Netherlands, New York, and Taipei are next on his list, so keep an eye on them Instagram for shipping from these locations and add one of the clever collages to your collection by adding a print in the Paperboyo shop.
