21 October 2016 @paperboyo brings skiing to London
But never as you've seen it before… The Ski Club have teamed up with Instagram sensation Rich McCor (aka @paperboyo) to create a unique series of images that transform the London skyline into a mountain playground.
Rich combines a hobby for intricate card cut-outs with photography, using clever perspective to bring landmarks to life and we’re very excited to have someone of Rich’s stature to collaborate with us. His following has raced past 200,000 and his work has featured in magazines, blogs and newspapers across the world – from the Daily Mail and Evening Standard over here to ABC News in Australia.
So successful has the @paperboyo account been for Rich, that he recently quit his job at the BBC to pursue a full time career as an Instragrammer and has recently worked with the likes of Lonely Planet, Visit Dubai and Netflix. His passion has taken him around the world so we were very lucky to grab him whilst in London to create a unique 4-part series of stunning, ingenious and fun images of the London skyline.
The first image will be published on Monday 24th – look out for a clever play on words and a slightly out of control skier! A second image, captured at one of London's most iconic sites by Rich at sunrise, will come out on Wednesday 26th and look out for further pictures as Christmas approaches. All photos will be posted below, but make sure you head to both @paperboyo and @skiclubgb on Monday – oh and keep an eye out in the papers…
And here is the first of @paperboyo's images, "Bank-Ski":
