I visit film locations and re-create scenes through the use of a camera & some imagination! …Film has been a huge part of my life since I was small and the passion has only increased as I’ve grown. I’ve always had a thirst for adventure and creativity so it was only a matter of time before I acted on this little photography endeavour. (synopsis via Laughing Squid)

We’re often told that life imitates art or art imitates life.

But what if the two of them occupied the same space at the same time and simply imitated each other? What would that look like?

British artist Thomas Duke aka Stepping Through Film thinks he has a fair idea, seamlessly joining together pop culture characters with real world locations to create a very cool merging of two distinctly different worlds.

The result, notes Laughing Squid, are very cool and thoroughly unique recreations of specific scenes.

“[By inserting] characters from films and television shows into their respective real-life locations around the world … Duke ensures that the perspective, scope, and angles match the specific scenes that he seeks to recreate. Duke stated that this project brought together his love of film, his talent for photography and his thirst for travel.”
