Our new Instagram addiction is the work of UK based artist and photographer, Rich McCor a.k.a Paperboyo. Paperboyo travels the world taking pictures of famous city landmarks but all with a twist! He is not only a skilled photographer, but also a clever artist who creates amazing and intricate paper cut-outs to enhance the attractions he captures. What results is an ingenious and hilarious take on well-known tourist spots around the globe. Now bring us the card and scissors – we want a go!
