Amazing Video

These amazing photos show some of the most iconic landmarks in the world like you’ve never seen them before.

Taken by London-based photographer Rich McCor, the photos show shadow cuts against the backdrop of iconic sights from across the globe, including New York, Toronto and Sweden.

The 31-year-old began taking the photos with his shadow cuts back in June 2015 in order to stand out. 

“It began when I realised that after four years of living in London I wasn’t really appreciating the landmarks, the sights and all the things that people fly thousands of miles to see,” he said.

“So I used photography as an excuse to go and explore my city a little more, and through doing so I joined Instagram. “However I realised that all the photos I was taking were the same as everyone elses’, so that’s when I decided to add a twist to my images with paper cutouts.

“It used to be that I’d wander around and wait for ideas and then cut them out on the spot. 

“I’m a bit more strategic now in that I research destinations before I visit them, and I hunt down the best vantage points through various photo websites and image libraries. That said, I still take my paper cutting equipment and black card with me in case I see something that sparks an idea.”
