Traveling Artist Transforms the World’s Landscapes with New Playful Paper Cut-Outs

Tower Bridge, London

We can’t get enough of the the paper-cut out world of photographer Rich McCor (aka paperboyo). As an avid traveler, he’s been pretty much everywhere, transforming global landmarks with his paper cut-outs. His latest work sees him back in his hometown of London, as well as in Toronto, and even South Korea.

McCor’s work is distinctively playful. He places paper silhouette cut-outs between his lens and landscape, allowing him to playfully interact with landmarks in humorous and lighthearted ways. In his latest work, London’s landscape transforms into a fairground when Tower Bridge becomes a gigantic roller coaster; a jazz musician plays The University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law building like an accordion; a little girl star gazes from Toronto’s CV tower; and in Croatia, clouds are painted onto the colorful sunset sky with a giant paintbrush.

After two years of cut-outs, McCor has recently published a book entitled Around the World in Cut-Outs. It’s full of his clever creations and is currently available on Amazon.

Take a look at Rich McCor’s imaginative paper cut-out scenes from around the world.
