Maxwell Tilse is a 23-year-old illustrator from Syndey, Australia, who also loves to travel around Europe. Instead of taking the usual images, he chooses to remember each place by making cut-outs of the most famous landmarks and put them next to the original ones in front of the camera. After staying for London for 2 years, he decided to create a series with the city’s oldest and most iconic pubs along with two of the most recognizable landmarks.

As obvious, the finishing touch of his projects is to photograph the cut-outs next to the original buildings for comparison.
