You might not have heard of Francois Dourlen on Instagram, but you really need to start following him. This French photographer is incredibly talented at entering our favourite characters from television and films into everyday situations. This makes for photography that ranges from cute and clever to the downright hilarious.
Think Tom Cruise trying to check his emails Mission Impossible style while you’re hoovering, or the cast of Baywatch suddenly appearing on a casual walk. Francois Dourlen is fun, fresh and definitely a photographer to watch.
Here are some of our favourite picks of his work:
1. Edward Scissorhands chopping bacon in the kitchen like a professional.
2. He found half the cast of Finding Nemo in an aquarium. If only Finding Nemo had been so easy.
3. This cartoon elephant is looking rather realistic in the zoo.
4. There were no teething problems with this Lego giraffe.
5. Who knew Marge Simpson has a new job guarding the Queen.
6. Chris Pratt just hanging out taming toy dinosaurs cause he’s a legend.
7. This statue is 100 times more brilliant with the Nemo-grumpy face. He is not amused.
8. When there is some epic destruction, we know which Avenger must have been on the scene.
9. He’s even found Dexter’s secret hideout. Probably best not to hang around though…
10. Rambo takes being a tourist VERY seriously.
11. Trying to check Facebook when there’s cleaning happening is a Mission Impossible.
12. This little Puss in Boots knows exactly how to beg for those kitten biscuits.
13. Thor, the mighty God of Thunder caught doing some garden DIY.
14. A wild minion was found wandering the streets.
