Photographing London’s Landmarks – How to be creative with paper cutouts

First question, how many pictures can you take of London’s landmarks and be creative with it? Second question, have you considered using paper cutouts to transform the sights into something else? No? Neither have we, until now… London based photographer Rich McCor decided to be a tourist for the day and photograph his own city’s landmarks, and not just by photographing Big Ben or using a retro filter on Instagram. McCor used intricate paper cutouts to transform the sights into something else, starting with the 156 year old Big Ben that he turned into a wristwatch.

He also managed to fit a London fact in with his photo of the iconic Embankment London Underground sign – inspired by Oswald Laurence, who did the original ‘Mind the Gap’ announcement, which was eventually only used at Embankment. A sweet fact about Oswald Laurence, was his wife used to visit the station every day after he died so she could hear his voice and after a brief hiatus, Laurence’s wife contacted TFL and his voice has been reinstated.
