Movie and TV Stills Creatively Inserted Into Real Life Using an iPhone


French photographer Francois Dourlen gets creative using nothing more than his surroundings and an iPhone, but he’s not an iPhoneographer. No, his iPhone is a subject of every one of his images, a little window into the magical world of movies and television inserted creatively into drab scenes in the real world.

A great set of forced perspective photographs that reminds us of the Newspaper and #mytoyplane series we’ve shared in the past, Dourlen’s images liven up the real world by turning a politician into Pinocchio or turning a green truck into a character from the Pixar movie Cars.

Not every image is a home run, but there are some really creative creations among them. Here’s a selection of our favorites:










You can find the full series over on Dourlen’s 500px and Facebook pages. And if you want to follow along as he adds more, be sure to give him a follow on Instagram as well.

    These may have started independently of each other. You may be right, but I have been guilty of not releasing projects that I spent weeks working on, because I saw something similar that I had been unaware of while working on my project.

    It may be better to avoid all judgment about who’s idea something may or may not have been altogether and just admire art however it may come about. Even if this idea was inspired it is a piece of art that should be given the right to stand or fall on it’s own.

    Remembering the words of Steve Jobs. “…it comes down to trying to expose yourself to the best things that humans have done and then try to bring those things in to what you’re doing. I mean Picasso had a saying he said ‘good artists copy great artists steal’ and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

    Say what you will about Steve Jobs. The world would be notably different without him. I don’t think if shameless theft of IP would be the best thing for the world, but I think living in a world free of judgments that hamper creativity would me the world a much better place.
