Guy uses his iPhone to mix cartoon characters and real life

Kevin Whipps March 31, 2021 · 2 min read

The things that people do on Instagram get cooler and cooler every day.
Take Francois Dourlen, for example, a (presumably French based on his avatar) photographer that captures images using his iPhone in a completely different way. What he does is display an image on one iPhone — usually a cartoon character, but it can be someone from a film, as well — and then take a picture with another camera so that the image on the iPhone looks like it’s a part of the real-life item. It’s a fun combination of art and style that’s quite cool, and it must be a blast to do.
To celebrate his work, we’ve assembled 10 of our favorites right here. If you have cool Instagram concept ideas, let us know, because we love stuff like this.
