Canada-based photographer Christopher Moloney has created the “FILMography” photo project that consists of images of movie scenes put over real-life locations.
Lots of people have a list of favorite movies. They wish they could live the stories or simply visit the locations where the films have been recorded.
Sometimes movies feel like they are not real, making people believe that the locations are actually improvised, instead of existing in real-life.
Photographer Christopher Moloney has set on a quest to prove that these locations are real. He has traveled to numerous countries and cities, taking movie scenes and putting them on top of present locations.
The artist captures a photo of the whole deal and adds it to the amazing “FILMography” project, which has been featured at many festivals and exhibitions.

If you have ever wondered how film locations look in real life, then you should wonder no more and take a look at “FILMography”. Christopher Moloney’s photo project combines movies and photography by recreating scenes from famous movies in the places where they have been filmed.
