Movies have a way of transforming us to another world. Even when the world is in our own backyard. Photographer Christopher Moloney is working on an ongoing project to match movie scenes to their exact, real life location.
Remember this scene from the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Miss Audrey Hepburn?
The project began in 2012 when Moloney was walking through Central Park – a location where many movies are made. He began printing a black and white photo from certain movies and layering them at the real life location and snapping a photo of it. He meticulously matches up the perspectives and angles (as close as possible) of each photograph to create the new picture, the images you see on his FILMography Tumblr account.
Since then, he has traveled all over the world for his FILMography project, from New York City to Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, San Antonio, Orlando, Rome, Naples, Ischia and and Ho Chi Minh City. There are hundreds of images on the site, with movies from the 40’s to present day blockbuster features.
There is a search feature where you can see your favorite movie locations. Here are a few of my favorites:
