At a museum, the focus is usually the art, right?
Well, one photographer with a fascination for people watching thinks otherwise, shifting his lens towards museum-goers who have inspired his project, People Matching Artworks.
Stefan Draschan is incredibly patient, often waiting a long time to snap onlookers who match up with what they’re viewing.
“It happened by chance,” Draschan told AWOL. “I love to observe things and if I see a pattern in human behaviour, I see the possibility that it is common and can become a series.”
Draschan says he finds it difficult to plan his series because the opportunity pops up at the most unexpected moments, though he says he would love to find a match for a Felix Vallotton painting.
“I like a lot of artwork and artists,” says Draschan. His interests range from Phidias and Hannah Höch, to Piero della Francesca.
You can see Draschan’s full catalogue at his website.
