I recently discovered photographer Michael Hughes, who is known for taking photos of the world’s most famous landmarks – perfectly blended with cheap souvenirs. I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos and bits of the article I read about him.

“I was on the tourist platform at the Lorelei cliffs next to the river Rhine when I held up a postcard I bought for my daughter. I was amazed because it just seemed to fill a massive gray hole that was in the sky and it was the exact position the photographer had taken the picture from.” – Michael Hughes

“After that I noticed coffee cups from a shop near the Statue of Liberty had the statue printed on so I poured my drink on the floor, and position 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.”

Michael’s photos have earned him over 5 million hits on Flickr and an invite to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
