    Riiiiight. .
    He “waited” at all those different pictures, just in the hope that someone would come by and stop – in just the right position.
    OR. . .
    Maybe it was all staged, with models standing in the clothes they were told to wear and in the position and pose they were told to by the photographer?

      If you go to a place where goof balls go it doesn’t take long for a goof ball to show up.

    • OR he doesn’t stand in front of one painting waiting for someone to come along but instead moves around the museums and looks for people who might match a certain paiting and then tries to capture the moment they stand in the right spot.

      I actually saw him once in a museum and the guy is genuine. He spent years doing this and other projects, like People Touching Artworks (https://peopletouchingartworks.tumblr.com/). That is his art, it’s not only about the product, but also about the process of how you achieve it.

    “Glorious waste of time” could be the name of this website.

  4. Just enjoy it and have fun.

  5. Stefan Draschan (photographer) is possibly unaware of European laws regarding art and personal privacy?
