London-based photographer Rich McCor, or paperboyo travels the globe giving creative updates to buildings, bridges, and signs through simple paper cutouts.
One of my personal favourites- Tower Bridge transformed into a Rollercoaster. It’s in my book ‘Around The World in Cut-Outs’ which is available to buy now from Amazon, Waterstones, Tesco & a bunch of other retailers. Happy Sunday! #books #reading #currentlyreading #nonfiction #bookstagream #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #bibliophile #art #paperart @instagram #instagram #paperboyo #cutouts #thisislondon #london #towerbridge #rollercoaster #sunrise #silhouette
By placing a black design in one of his images, London’s Tower Bridge instantly transformed into a looping roller coaster. And a Canadian building miraculously appears like a lengthy accordion.
The paper artist also makes use of the natural environment as a creative backdrop for his paper works.
In 2005 the mayor of Mississauga, a City West of Toronto, announced an international design competition for a tower to be known as Absolute World. Two years later, after a public vote, the winner was selected- Yasong Ma, of MAD Architectural Design Studio in Beijing. Pretty quickly the spiralling, curvaceous tower was nicknamed Marilyn Monroe. When apartments in Marilyn Monroe went on sale, they all sold within 24 hours. So naturally the developers quickly announced that a second Marilyn Monroe was going to be built, also spiralling and asymmetric but apparently this was going to be Marilyn after a binge because the second tower was designed to be rounder and plumper so as to accommodate more apartments #ExploreCanada #MyCanadianAffair @ExploreCanada @airtransat #Toronto
Recently he published a book based on his cutout journeys, titled Around the World in Cut-Outs.
This setting is on the shore of Niagara-on-the-Lake, a small town where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario. While I was holding up the bride & groom cutout, a local lady told me that that couples can actually get married in the bandstand, which provided a nice bit of serendipitous context for this caption. So if you're looking for a venue…. #ExploreCanada #MyCanadianAffair @ExploreCanada @airtransat
