François Dourlen is a talented 32-year-old photographer, instagram star and history and French language teacher from Cherbourg, Normandy, France. Instagram artist creates hilarious and perfectly aligning images combining scenes displayed on his iPhone with everyday locations all over the world. “I’ve always preferred Polaroids to anything else, particularly digital,” Francois explaines. “My first love was pop/rock music–it still is. I’m a musician first, photographer second.”
“At first, it wasn’t really even a project. It all started with a joke, a photo I made for my friends’ child’s bedroom. They wanted something funny, so I made a photo in this style, I posted it online and quite a few people liked it and shared it.
I made another one, then another, and it took off from there. Since then, I’ve worked for Netflix, Marvel, PlayStation… I’m not even a photographer. I’m work as a teacher for a living!”
François Dourlen turns reality into funny scenes and shares his artwork on instagram, where his account has amassed 103,000 followers. His art is very simmular to Yahav Draizin‘s work.
