Candid captures require patience, particularly when a
photographer like Stefan
Draschan decides to wait for a perfect aesthetic
coincidence between a work of art and one of its passing
He traveled around Europe to assemble this series of People
Matching Artworks, finding strange instances when
colors, shapes, patterns and sizes align to snap a great shot.
Famous paintings may last, but these moments are fleeting.
In some cases, it’s the gallery-goer’s body that makes a match.
In others: a colorful hat, or pattern in the cut of a top. In
rare instances, a pair of people may even match two different
artworks in the same (photographic) frame.
This is not Draschan’s only such series, either. Clearly more
as fascinated with humans as the art they choose to peruse, he
has also assembled sets like People Touching Artworks
and People Sleeping in Museums, the titles of which
speak for themselves. Check out the photographer’s website for
more in these series.
