Photographer Spends Countless Hours Waiting To Capture Museum Visitors Who Match The Artworks


Patience. Some of us have it and some of us don’t. One thing for sure is that French photographer Stefan Draschan has more patience than most.  His latest project titled “People Matching Artworks” is a prime example of this. Although you may think that Draschan’s images are staged, the secret behind them is an abundance of patience.

Stefan spent countless hours visiting different museums in Paris, Vienna and Berlin where he would wait for visitors to match with a piece of art in a funny way. The result are these humorous and unique images of unexpected harmony between people and the artworks they’re facing. It’s usually the outfits that match the art, but there are also people who match with the paintings because of their hair styles and colors, or even beards.

Scroll down to see this ongoing project for yourself and beware – Stefan Draschan might be somewhere out there “hunting” for you!
