Artist Continues Putting Iconic Characters Into Real Life Surroundings (New Photos)


Like many of us, Francois Dourlen found inspiration in everyday life. He once wrote and we quote, “The scenes of everyday life always make me think of things I’ve seen in cartoons, movies or video games. With this kind of photo, I can show people what goes through my head daily.” That’s why the famous and fictional subjects in his snaps set his work apart from the rest of the artist community.

François Dourlen is a creative French Photographer who features his iPhone in creative photographs by placing characters from popular films like Snow-white, Mulan, the lion king and more into real-life situations. He positions his phone just at the right angle so the picture inside the phone seems like an extension to the reality surrounding it.


Due to his creativity, Francois has accumulated more than 190k followers on his Instagram profile. He’s becoming quite popular on the social media. Scroll on to see some amazing photos by Francois that we have listed below and enjoy peeps.
