Rich McCor brings new life to popular landmarks throughout the U.S. with a series of darkly hued cardboard shapes of cinematic characters from films. The cutouts are superimposed onto the settings so that it looks as though the silhouettes are engaging with the scenes. The designs bring together iconic cinematography along with the cultural history of the U.S.

The combination of cutout silhouettes and real life landscapes allows McCor to experiment with recreating scenes from films such as King Kong or Spider-Man. Each photo showcases McCor holding up a cutout of a famed character interacting with the landscape. For example, King Kong is depicted climbing the Empire State building. Other illustrations simply play with the size of the architecture or setting, such as one photo that turns a building into a shopping bag.
