Photographer François Dourlen continues to inspire as he charts new paths into the mobile age of photography with his innovative style and booming hobby. He incorporates classic images from cinematic pop-culture into daily scenes in the world around him via his iPhone display and some creative flare.

"It all started with a joke." Dourlen said. "One day I replaced the statue of Napoleon Cherbourg by a small pony, the image quickly made the rounds of my friends. I made a second picture in this style, a gogo dancer in the subway, [and] the machine sharing was launched."

François has found something promising here, with corporate advertisers ringing him with more offers for sponsorship than he can fully handle.

"I've already made ​​plans for Intel and others are under discussion, including an international campaign ad for a brand of tablets."

Truly a great reminder of how far a bit of creativity and innovation can carry us!
