The metro can be a real place of inspiration. Yes, it may surprise to say like that, but when we discover the project of the English photographer Matt Crabtreewe almost want to go underground to look for a similar creative project. Because her idea, we find it very funny ...
Taking the metro daily, like millions of people, this curious photographer watched the passengers until they had the idea to take a picture of them to make them look like ... Renaissance portraits ! These historical paintings, where the models are most often expressionless, perfectly fit the style of subway passengers who are often immersed in a reading or in their thoughts while waiting for their station.
And it is in all discretion with his iPhone that he captures these one-day models in their daily routines. Photos that he will have to retouch quickly with games of shades that imitate the style of these paintings of the 16th century.
An unusual idea, which shows that inspiration is really everywhere. The artist had the idea to compile his pictures in a book called16th Century Tube Passengers which you will find in clicking here. And to see more photos, go to the project site or on that Instagram account.
