This Photographer ‘Transforms’ Tourist Buildings Into Ordinary Objects

Through the creation of Hugo Suissas, the Sydney Opera House has turned into a book. The London Eye? Into a giant pizza…

Hugo Suíssas is a creative photographer from Lisbon, Portugal. He regularly posts on his Instagram photos transforming famous tourist attractions in Lisbon and around the world into everyday objects.

Each of his photos has a different story and idea. They help viewers see familiar landmarks in a brand new and much more interesting way. Hugo’s Instagram account currently has 175,000 followers.

Sydney Opera House is one of the tourist icons of Australia. Hugo checked in this familiar place with a book, making the “clam shell” look like the pages of a book being opened.

Praca do Comercio is the most magnificent square in Lisbon, Portugal. Three sides of the square are surrounded by yellow buildings in the Pombaline architectural style, with the south side facing the mouth of the Tejo River. This is the Rua Augusta Arch leading into the city center, turned into an incandescent light bulb by Hugo himself.

At the same location, Hugo created a visual effect of turning the gate into a lock when shooting it together with an antique key. In the past, during the 18th century, captains and merchants would plan perilous sea voyages to Brazil, India, and Southeast Asia at the very same place, and then trade goods upon their return. Consequently, Praca do Comercio was built as an iconic gateway into Lisbon.

Belem Tower in Lisbon, Portugal turned into a giant sand castle. This place was built with the original purpose of protecting the city, then became a lighthouse and even a customs center. The fortification was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.

Chichen Itza, whose name means “At the mouth of the well of the Itza”, is located in Yucanta, Mexico. This is the largest work of the ancient Mayans left to this day. Now a World Heritage Site attracting many tourists, its Temple of Kukulcan is turned into an umbrella.

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, France is associated with a clothespin. This is a tourist symbol of the City of Light. The 1063-foot-tall tower was once the tallest building in the world until it was usurped by New York’s Chrysler Building in 1929.

The Ferris wheel weighs more than 1,000 tons with 443 feet high, is named “the London Eye” or “Millennium Wheel”. This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the capital of the UK, located on the banks of the River Thames. Hugo turned it into a giant pizza with only 2 pieces left.

Dubbed the twin brother of the Golden Gate Bridge in the US, “Ponte 25 de Abril” has a total length of 7,470 ft. This is the longest suspension bridge in Europe and the first in Lisbon, Portugal. The building was named “April 25” in memory of the date of the Carnation Revolution. Hugo turned this historic building into a drying rack.
