Life repeats art: an Austrian takes photos of museum visitors who "coincided" with the paintings

Viennese photographer Stefan Draschan has been shooting visitors to European museums for two years against the background of" suitable " paintings — when a person's clothes or hairstyle are combined with a work of art in color, saturation or ornament. For the sake of a successful shot, a photographer can disappear in museums for hours.

Judging by Drashan's website, he generally likes to notice visual pairs around: he blogs about identically dressed couples, about three people against the background of paintings, about cars against the background of similar houses, as well as about people who sleep in museums.
