Photographer Spent Days Waiting For Museum Visitors To Match The Artworks They Observe, And it Was Worth It

Published 1 month ago

While most of us visit art museums to see art (duh, right?), others, like France-based photographer Stefan Draschan, are there to create their own pieces. And Stefan does it by camping in galleries for days, waiting for visitors who perfectly match the artworks they observe.

His photo series is called “People matching artworks,” and seeing it at first you might get an impression that it’s all staged. But the artist reassures that these perfect shots are actually achieved using patience, and a ton of it.

When Stefan visits an art gallery, he always looks for interesting and funny matches of artworks and visitors’ outfits, hairstyles, colors or even beards. So the next time you’re visiting art venues in Paris, Vienna or Berlin, try to look away from the paintings for a second, and maybe then you’ll see Stefan, waiting for his perfect shot.
