Do you know that moment when a person is quietly contemplating an artwork in such a way that he loses himself into that artwork? France-based photographer Stefan Draschan surely knows what that feeling is all about because he spent almost an eternity watching people looking at paintings. The result is an impressive series of photographs of people matching artworks. They surely blend in with the picture, from the chromatics to the very feeling of it. Their silent contemplation and their outfits become part of a bigger picture, a picture that we get the chance to look at now.
From the historical miracle of a classical painting or sculpture to the modern wonder of photography, these series prove that art has a transcendental power that pervades our daily trivialities and will continue to amaze us, in its multiple forms. Art is changing and so are we. Or is it the other way around?
