Londralı fotoğraf sanatçısı Rich McCor bir Instagram fenomeni. @paperboyo ismiyle bir yıla yakın süredir paylaşımlarına devam eden fotoğrafçı dünyanın çeşitli yerlerindeki ikonik binaları, yolları, köprüleri fotoğraflıyor. Ancak bu fotoğrafların, benzeri yüzbinlercesinden bir farkı var. Hepsi de Rich’in siyah kağıt parçalarının müdahalesine maruz bırakılmış, absürt kareler.

Çalışmaları tek tek sosyal medyada viral olan @paperboyo şimdi iki işte çalışıyor gibi bu Instagram hesabını canlı tutabilmek adına sık sık yollara düşüyor. “Feature Shoot“a verdiği röportajda zaten bir ajans çalışanı olduğu için seyahatlerine devam etme noktasında henüz bir sıkıntı yaşamadığını söylüyor. Yine de Portekiz’den, Avustralya’dan, Fas’tan, İspanya’dan gelen çeşitli teklifleri geri çevirmek zorunda kaldığını da ifade ediyor.

Henüz Instagram hesabının ilk günlerinde Lonely Planet tarafından keşfedildiğini ve onların sponsorluğunda kısa Avrupa seyahatleri gerçekleştirdiğini yine aynı röportajda belirten fotoğrafçı, Las Vegas seyahatini unutamıyor. Şehri çok iyi tanıyan insanlarla seyahat ettiğini, bu sayede doğru yerleri kısa sürede ziyaret edebildiğini ve istediği fotoğrafları çekebildiğini söylüyor.

Playing in the fountains at Somerset House. Fun fact- Soon after the Royal Society moved in to Somerset House they identified a new planet in the solar system. It was originally given the name 'Georgium Sidus' (after the King at the time) which is only slightly less ridiculous than the name it eventually ended up with; 'Uranus' #london #somersethouse #creative_camera #bbctravel #photography #instaphoto #fantastic_earth #mytinyatlas #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #letsgosomewhere #passionpassport #lifeofadventure @earthfocus @discoverearth #thisislondon #londonlife #cityoflondon #instalondon #surf #surfing #fountains #travel #sea #lifeofadventure #streetart #instaart #art #silhouette #timeoutlondon #londonlive @londonontheinside #londonforyou

Towards the end of WWI, France built a ‘Second Paris’ near the capital city to confuse German pilots. It was located near the town of Maisons-Laffitte, on a stretch of the River Seine. As well as replicas of iconic landmarks, including the Arc de Triomphe, it even had sham streets lined with electric lights so that from the sky it would look like a real city.

They're the first thing you see when you fly into Dublin, but the iconic Poolbeg chimneys might not be around for much longer unless someone can come up with an idea to make money from them. There have been numerous ideas so far, including an idea from designer Michael O'Mara, who suggests that a 'sky-bridge' could be built between the two tips which would offer the potential for bungee jumping. That’s probably better than my idea of turning it into an over-priced washing line #dublin #poolbegtowers #dublincity #igersdublin #lovindublin #lovedublin #discoverdublin #instadublin @dublindiaries @visitdublin @picturethisdublin #loveireland #ireland_gram #paper #clothes #fashion #shirt #silhouette #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #architectureporn #architecturelovers #instagram #bungeejump #intepidtravel #architecture #bridge #bbcbritain #bbctravel #design @lovindublin

It's a chilly day on the Samuel Beckett bridge. Hope you've been liking the Dublin pics! If you do and you're feeling generous- I'd love it if you bought yourself something through my Kickstarter campaign (link is in my bio on my page). I've been making postcards of my images and cut-out kits for anyone who wants to create their own quirky photos. If you're feeling generous, but not thaaaat generous then please share the link, tag people here, rave about it to the next person you see etc. It's a crowdfunded project, so it's only going to come to life if enough people get interested! Couple more Dublin pics coming very soon, and then it's back to London #dublin #dublincity #igersdublin #lovindublin #lovedublin #discoverdublin #instadublin @dublindiaries @visitdublin @picturethisdublin #loveireland #ireland_gram #paper #craft #art #paperart #silhouette #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #architectureporn #architecturelovers #instagram #ski #skiing #kickstarter #crowdfunding #intepidtravel #architecture @lovindublin @kickstarter

Central Singapore has a skyscraper limit of 280m due to the proximity of the airport. Over the last few decades three buildings in Singapore were built right up to the imposed limit. However in a bid to outdo it's rivals, One Raffles Place opened a roof top bar on their building. Therefore a 2m glass parapet had to be added as a safety measure for guests. So technically (and slightly sneakily) One Raffles Place is the tallest building in Singapore @visit_singapore #yoursingapore #singapore #wow_singapore #singaporetoday #exploresingapore #singapore_city #ig_singapore #travel #architecture #architecturelovers #architectureporn #passionpassport #unicycle #unicyclist #paperart #cutout #instasingapore #adventure #silhouette #wanderlust #paper #art #reflection #city #sunset #skyline #reflection_shotz #reflections

Ever fancied laying on an Indonesian or Malaysian beach whilst you're in this part of the world, but don't have the time to venture further than Singapore? I have a hack for you. Head to Sentosa island and find the 1.2 mile long beach. Lay down and enjoy the sand; every grain of it was imported from Indonesia and Malaysia.

If you look closer at some buildings in Hong Kong, you’ll notice large holes carved into the centre of them. It seems strange that the developers would allow a waste of space in a city where every inch is precious, the reason? Dragons. Legend says that the mountains here are home to dragons with positive and powerful energy. In a city where vast structures block the dragons’s passage, the holes provide an unobstructed path to the sea for them to drink and bathe, allowing the energy to flow through the city. In fact Feng Shui is considered so integral here that that engineers, architects and property developers take Feng Shui courses before completing their training and certification. I love this fact; there's something heartwarming about tradition, culture & mystery winning over greed and instant profits in the property market @DiscoverHongKong #HongKong #Dragon #DragonHoles #RepulseBay #FengShui #Energy #Mystery #GOT #GameofThrones #PositiveEnergy #HK #HKIG #HongKongLife #DiscoverHongKong #IgersHongKong #ILoveHongKong #Travel #Adventure #PassionPassport #Paper #PaperArt #Silhouette #ArchitectureLovers #ArchitecturePorn #Architecture #Wanderlust #Cityscape

So dinner went like this: “Stop everything, I've had an idea for a photo! Let me put the juice in the background, the menu here, the steamer can go there and if you hold the chopsticks like this. That’s nice. Oh wait, the light's better over there. Move everything”. “Err Rich, how long’s this going to take, I’m hungry…and people are looking at us”. But fortunately the team at Shang Palace were totally game for letting me get creative with their (incredible) food @KowloonShangriLa @DiscoverHongKong #HongKong #Chopstick #DimSum #Foodporn #Chinese #Food #Dinner #HK #HKIG #Kowloon #ShangPalace #KowloonShangriLa #HongKongLife #DiscoverHongKong #IgersHongKong #ILoveHongKong #Travel #Adventure #PassionPassport #Paper #PaperArt #Silhouette #FoodArt #Food #CreativeFood #Restaurant #Tightrope #Happy35KSL

Look who followed me from Singapore to Hong Kong ?. The pool here at @IslandShangriLa is a great place to gaze up at the iconic Bank of China building. It’s a quirky design but in terms of Feng Shui, the bank's skyscraper is considered “aggressive" because the edges of the triangles point towards its rivals (a "direct attack" in Feng Shui). So nearby HSBC responded to the “attack”; they installed two maintenance cranes on their roof but had them specifically designed to look like cannons and pointed them directly at the Bank of China @DiscoverHongKong #BankofChina #FengShui #HongKong #Hotel #HK #HKIG #IslandShangriLa #HongKongLife #DiscoverHongKong #IgersHongKong #ILoveHongKong #Travel #Adventure #PassionPassport #Paper #PaperArt #Silhouette #Pool #Whale #architecture #architecturelovers #whalewatching #swim #swimming #runway_vacation #HSBC #Bank

When Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned by Solomon Guggenheim to design a museum for his art collection, he went a bit over the top with some of his ideas. His original concepts included a super fast glass-tube elevator that would whisk visitors up to the top of the building in moments & an automatic vacuum system in the lobby to constantly clean the dirt brought in by visitors. According to Wright’s widow, he had become increasingly frustrated by the compromises he had been forced to make and although he passed away before the New York Guggenheim opened, she suspected he wouldn’t have attended the opening anyway. However, if you ever visit the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao (designed by Frank Gehry & opened in 1997) you’ll notice that there is a very modern looking glass-tube elevator in there. I like to think this was Gehry’s way of making at least one of Wright’s crazy ideas come to life.

Beside the Coney Island boardwalk is this structure, the Parachute Jump. When it opened in 1940, it was designed to simulate the experience of falling to earth in a parachute but it struggled to make money. So the operators came up with an idea; they offered free rides to young women who looked like “screamers”. They’d then purposefully strand the ladies in mid-air during the descent so they, as expected, would scream in terror. Totally cruel, but for a while it did help to attract the crowds. However even these marketing tactics weren’t enough and combined with the fact that the ride often had to shut due to wind, it closed forever in 1964. Since then the tower has survived abandonment, planned demolitions, fires & Hurricane Sandy. Even Trump’s Dad tried to pull this thing down but it’s still here- a series of feats worth blowing it’s own trumpet about I reckon.
