This spectacular series of pop culture pictures by François Dourlen combines elements from movies with appropriate locations. The process for this includes using a screenshot or picture from pop culture that is pulled up on a phone and taking a picture of said image in a strategically placed position over a fitting background.

Examples of this include placing the eye of Sauron from Lord of the Rings at the top of a building, pretending to put Thomas the Tank Engine on actual train tracks and replacing a skateboarder’s skateboard with a hoverboard from Back to the Future.

The concept of this has been used by photographers many times with combining historical photos with modern landscapes, and it works very well with these pop culture pictures as well. Stats for Superimposed Pop Culture Images Trending: Older & Buzzing
