Shape shifters! These amazing landmarks as you’ve never seen them before

These amazing photos show some of the world’s most iconic landmarks as you’ve never seen them before.

Taken by London-based photographer Rich McCor, the images show shadow cut paperwork held against the backdrop of iconic sights from across the globe, including the landmarks of New York, Toronto and Sweden.

The 31-year-old began taking the photos with his shadow cuts back in June 2015 in order to stand out from the crowd.

His newest collection turns famous sights from around the world into pop culture icons.

Rich said: “I realised that after four years of living in London I wasn’t really appreciating the landmarks, the sights and all the things that people fly thousands of miles to see.

“So I used photography as an excuse to go and explore my city a little more, and through doing so I joined Instagram.

“However I realised that all the photos I was taking were the same as everyone else’s, so that’s when I decided to add a twist to my images with paper cutouts.

“It used to be that I’d wander around and wait for ideas and then cut them out on the spot.

“I’m a bit more strategic now in that I research destinations before I visit them, and I hunt down the best vantage points through various photo websites and image libraries.

“That said, I still take my paper cutting equipment and black card with me in case I see something that sparks an idea.”
