Photographer Uses iPhone to Playfully Merge Pop Culture Characters with Real Life

Photographer Franois Dourlen fuses fictional characters from pop culture with the real world in an ongoing photo series. Using only his iPhone, the artist superimposes beloved characters into existing scenarios. His clever, implied interactions allow the viewer to tap into their own imaginations and see these two-dimensional characters playfully explore our world. Robin Williams' Genie appears to pop out of a tea kettle, Spongebob Squarepants‘ Patrick Star becomes an actual star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Marvel's Thor uses his mighty hammer to help with a bit of maintenance around the house. No matter what the situation, Dourlen uses his creative mind to make the unreal seem real as two different worlds collide.
