Matching Artworks 1


“I started taking photographs in summer 2013 when I quit smoking and moved from Vienna to Berlin. Before I was a journalist, ran a coffee shop and was a DJ, I didn't know that seeing might be my main talent.” Stefan Draschan


Photographer Stefan Draschan visits museums around Europe to see not just the artwork but the people observing the artwork. In his series People Matching Artworks he patiently waits for museum-goers who unintentionally coordinate with the art they’re observing, and snaps a candid photo of the coincidence. Stefan Draschan always keeps himself entertained at art galleries by creating his own art projects. One of those projects is “People matching artworks”. Although at first Draschan’s images seem perfectly staged, the secret behind them is actually patience. The photographer enjoys visiting different museums mostly in Paris, Vienna and Berlin where he waits for visitors to suddenly match with a piece of art in a funny way. The result is these humorous and unique pictures of unexpected harmony between people and the artworks they’re facing. It’s usually the outfits that match the art, but there are also people who match with the paintings because of their hair styles and colors, or even beards.
