Happy Accidents

Stefan Draschan

Like many artists, Stefan Draschan can often be found hanging around in museums. However, the clever photographer is not just there to view art; he’s also there to make it. This is his incredibly satisfying project called “People Matching Artworks” wherein the French photographer captures perfect pairings of art and admirer. Even were they staged, they’d be fantastic photos! Although Draschan claims to hang around and wait for these happy accidents to occur, I have a sneaking suspicion that when he spots someone dramatically dressed, he may follow them around until they hit just the right artwork. That’s certainly what I would do. However he achieves them, he’s got a great eye, and a terrific sense of humor, and his photos are great fun to look at.

You can check out Draschan’s hundreds of clever photos on his website.

  2. I wonder if any of those were combined using a program like Photoshop or did he sit there hour after hour waiting maybe days for the right person to stand near the painting. Eighter way, each one is very interesting. Hal

  5. These are SO satisfying to look at. I wonder what his success rate is. Does he ever have a day where nobody matches a painting? Does he ever target someone and stalk them and then finds that they never stand in front of the painting he needs them to?
