Artist Riccardo Schirinzi is mashing up the people, places and things you see every day to create a whole new world.
Schirinzi takes strolls through neighborhoods and takes photos of anything that piques his interest. For him, that means everything from city landscapes to mugs to tourists. Then, he combines these photos together, or adds stock photos, to create an image with an entirely different meaning. The result is a surreal scene that looks straight out of a fantasy novel.
"Most of my fun comes out when I play with paradoxes," Schirinzi told CityLab. "When I mix up real environments together with unreal interference (like shapes, people, objects)."
He shares his eye-catching photos on his Instagram account posted under the handle charlie_davoli.
