As far as museums are concerned, it generally goes without saying that the exhibit is the art. French photographer Stefan Draschan puts a twist on this, turning museum-goers into art themselves. His project, “People Matching Artworks“, features museum visitors who may as well be a part of the work themselves, with their clothes, hair or accessories appearing to be extensions of the artwork. Waiting for the perfect photo sounds tedious, and it is—Draschan attributes the success of the project to patience.
He typically frequents museums in Paris, Berlin, and Vienna, where he waits for a chance to capture the perfect photo—the results of which are incredible moments of quiet, unexpected harmony.
