Austrian photographer Stefan Draschan, has created art out of people looking at art. It's also not staged. Which makes it all the more special. When you happen to see people who embody what they're looking at it's really special.

ANNEMARIE MCCARTHY a writer for Lonely Planet recently interviewed Stefan and here's an excerpt on how he achieves such greatness with random encounters:


He saw his first two matches months apart and it was only then that he saw the potential for a series.
"Beauty and magic inspire me most," he told Lonely Planet. "I used to photograph all kind of things as I have a wide range of interests. It took some time to find out that it's no single coincidence but happens quite often."
The process of catching just the right moment may seem time-consuming but Stefan said the process is quite relaxing. For a recent university lecture, he said it took nine minutes for the shot to come through and the first step was simply finding a photograph you like.
He then waits for a person to arrive who looks like they'll 'match' the artwork but he doesn't approach them; instead he simply hopes they will be drawn to the painting and he'll grab the perfect shot. "I have to observe well, and I can concentrate on the artworks itself," he said. "I have no stress at all."
The main bulk of his photos are taken in Paris, Vienna and Berlin but in total, he estimates he's been to 40 museums around Europe though he has dreams of going further afield with the project.
"I want to go to many more museums all over the world. Sometimes I dream of seeing all existing 34 Jan Vermeers and I develop travel plans like going to the Metropolitan in New York. There are over four million Dutch landscape paintings from the 17th century in the world, I'd love to catch a match in front of each of them."
