A Guy From Austria Takes Perfectly Timed Photos to Show Us Life Imitating Art

Stefan Draschan's work is full of beautiful illustrations that capture museum visitors perfectly complementing the color scheme of famous paintings. Just when a museum-goer steps closer to the canvas to admire the brushstrokes, Draschan begins to take photos. At first glance, the photos look contrived, but this is far from the truth. The photographer spends a lot of time in museums in Paris, Vienna and Berlin looking for unexpected combinations of visitors and famous works of art.

Bright Side has collected a list of photos that were taken at just the right time, showing us that the life really does imitate art.
