In this modern world where technology is within our grasp, people can make things famous in just a snap of a camera or video clips uploaded online. There are so many ways to make us notice something or someone but what sets them apart is the true ingenuity of men–behind every artwork, photo or invention.

Instagrammer Rich McCor or “Paperboyo” wanted to explore the famous landmarks in his own city so he began by collecting facts about them including how he can photograph each site in a unique way. First, he came up with an idea to use a cutout to transform Big Ben into a wristwatch and he did. Seeing those who took interest in his work, he was even motivated to do more. He then photographed other landmarks like the London Eye, St. Paul’s and Trafalgar Square. He also posted them on his Instagram account with some interesting facts about each landmark.

More people admired his brilliant work and later on, he even partnered with the Lonely Planet. They asked him if he could create more photos for them and so he agreed. Soon after, he traveled to different other places such as Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Paris and Stockholm–doing what he does best and loving it.

“I crammed in so much in the few days I was in each city, running around with a camera, handful of cut-outs and a head full of random facts to accompany each photo.”
