Big Ben, London
When most people go to a landmark or tourist attraction, they take home a little souvenir to remind them of their trip. Then there’s Michael Hughes. He loves to take pictures of world famous landmarks – perfectly blended with cheap souvenirs.
Born in Britain and now living in Germany, 56-year-old Michael Hughes is a freelance photographer. Hughes started this hobby back in 1998 and has accumulated a rich collection of over 100 fun images using this blending technique in 200 countries he visited.
“I noticed coffee cups from a shop near the Statue of Liberty had the statue printed on it, so I poured my drink on the floor, and positioned it in front of the statue. Since then, taking the pictures has developed into a hobby and a passion to the point where I have been taking trips recently just to photograph a souvenir next to its landmark.” Great work, Mark!
