El fotógrafo que transforma monumentos emblemáticos

Rich McCor solo precisó papel, tijera y una imaginación envidiable para convertirse en una celebridad en Instagram
@PaperBoyo, la cuenta de Instagram donde Rich McCor publica sus intervenciones a monumentos en papel, alcanza los 193 mil seguidores. El londinense de 29 años se atrevió a convertir el Arco de Triunfo en un Lego, el London Eye en una bicicleta y el museo Guggenheim de Nueva York en un florero.

La creación de historias y personajes para vestir monumentos icónicos es su forma de cambiar el mundo. Desde 2015, cuando su popularidad creció exponencialmente, ha combinado su trabajo como publicista de la BBC con sus viajes por el mundo para alimentar su cuenta de Instagram.

Let me take you back to a December night in 1989. It’s late, Wall Street is empty except for a lonely night watchman. He is about to complete his rounds outside the Stock Exchange. In eight minutes he’ll be back. A man named Arturo Di Modica knows this because he’s been casing the area every night for the last week. When the watchman is out of sight, Di Modica steers a truck down the street and pulls up in front of the large Christmas tree on Wall Street. He and a group of friends jump out. In under five minutes they manage to lower a 3,200 kg bronze sculpture from the back of the truck to under the tree. When it’s done, the men take off in the truck but Di Modica stays behind. He wants to see the watchman's reaction. In fact, until noon the next day he stays hidden around a corner watching New Yorkers fall in love with his Christmas gift to the city. The Charging Bull has now moved here to Bowling Green, but if you ever visit the statue you'll see the same thing Di Modica saw that morning- people falling in love with this fierce, bold, beautiful sculpture #ChargingBull #WallStreet #NYSE #NewYorkStockExchange #BowlingGreen #Bull #Sculpture #NewYork #NYC #SeeYourCity #NYCGo @NYCGo @NYC #InstagramNYC @NewYorkCity #NYCInstantly #nycnightlife #nycphotographer #blogger #Paper #Paperart #Cityscape #Silhouette @newyork_instagram @newyork #thecreatorsclass #illgrammers #photography #doyoutravel #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #newyorker #USA #Cowboy #Lasso
