Rich McCor is better to known to many as @paperboyo on Instagram.
Specifically, he’s better known by that moniker to the over 284,000 followers he’s earned for creating one of the most imaginative travel accounts online.
Like many social media sensations McCor travels the world updating his account with beautiful photographs as he goes, but where others see a landmark, Rich sees an opportunity.
McCor uses intricate paper figures and cut outs to transform world-renowned photograph spots and give them a creative new edge.
“I found my style of photography through trying to emulate some of my favourite photographers and deciding I’d never reach their dizzying heights,” he tells us. “So I started introducing paper cutouts to differentiate my images. I noticed that people enjoyed these images on my Instagram, so moved away from trying to take traditional photos and focused on cutout images.”
This has involved everything from turning the London Eye into a bicycle to making the Arc de Triomph a Lego figure and lining up the Easter Island statues for a game of foosball. Rich’s posts not only feature the ingenious image but often have a descriptive caption about the history of the spot he finds himself in.
