It sometimes happens in museums that individuals strikingly resemble the art they are viewing. Stefan Draschan has developed a knack for spotting and photographing these amusing coincidences. Over the past few years, while strolling through the museums of Europe, Draschan captured similarities between the works of art and the people looking at them, noticing kinships in color, pattern, hairstyle or physical posture. A young man in denim merges with a blue Caspar David Friedrich landscape; a cluster of schoolkids chime with the mass of bodies in a Rubens; a young girl in blue uncannily mirrors the subject of a Renoir.
