Artist couple takes the quirkiest photos with architecture as props

The couple that plays together, stays together. Anna Devis and Daniel Rueda are just like any other couple—they have their good days and bad days, they argue, celebrate anniversaries, and go through typical couple stuff. They also travel the world and produce eye-catching photographs, so they’re at least that much more awesome.

The shots they’ve become famous for take advantage of architectural finds such as staircases and brick walls. They go the extra mile and dress up (sometimes even with props), and just get plain wacky with the background. The results speak for themselves.

Take a look:

#WHPColorStudy 🏄🏻 Is it possible to be respectful with the environment while driving a car like this? Now with the new #RepsolAutogas it seems so! However, until I get one of those, I guess I’ll have to stick with my skateboard and my balloons… Hit the gas, @anniset! — ¿Es posible ser respetuoso con el medio ambiente al mismo tiempo que conduces un coche así? ¡Ahora con el nuevo #RepsolAutogas parece que sí! No obstante, hasta que yo no me haga con uno de estos, tendré que seguir conformándome con mi monopatín y mis globos… ¡Pisa a fondo, @anniset!

📢 Ay, #benditosbares, ¿eh? Si no fuera por sus terrazas, sus tapitas y, sobre todo: sus camareros… ¿Qué haríamos todos nosotros? Imaginad, ¡yo tendría que disfrazarme de esta guisa cada vez que Anna tiene sed…! Una de @CocaCola_esp para la señorita del megáfono, ¡marchando! – God bless bars, huh? If it wasn’t for the terraces, the tapas and, above it all: the waiters… What would we all do without them? I myself for example would have to dress up as a bartender whenever Anna is thirsty…! A cold bottle of @CocaCola for the lady yelling through the megaphone, right away!

“Thanks to their clever poses, building façades become theatrical backdrops, spiral staircases turn into playgrounds, and windows are transformed into versatile props,” writes Kelly Richman-Abdou.

“Given the aesthetically cohesive and visually fascinating nature of their photos, it is no surprise that the couple’s artistic talents transcend playful posing and photography. Devis is an illustrator and designer, while Rueda is a trained architect.”

😙⚫️ That moment when you realize you are chewing black bubblegum, in front of a black dotted wall, while wearing a black polka dots dress…! Who has not this happened? — Ese instante en el que te das cuenta de que estás mascando chicle de color negro, delante de una pared punteada de negro, ¡el día en el que llevas puesto tu vestido de lunares negros…! ¿A quién no le ha pasado?

🌓 I know that everything in life cannot be beautiful walls and round balloons, but after an entire week listening to @RoyalBloodUK’s last album #HowDidWeGetSoDark, this is the only way I could convince her to get out of the house… Feels good to be black, am I white @anniset? — Ya sé que en la vida no todo pueden ser paredes bonitas y globos redondos, pero después de una semana sin parar de escuchar el último álbum de @RoyalBloodUK, ésta ha sido la única forma de convencerla para salir de casa… ¡Se ha quedado en blanco (y en negro) al verla, ¿a que sí, @anniset?!

#👒 Although flying in a hot air ballon is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have in your life, I must make a little complaint… It is pretty windy up there! You need to be really cautious not to drop any of your beloved items… Anna! Didn't you hear what I just said? Hold on to your hats! Aunque volar en globo es una de las sensaciones más placenteras que uno puede experimentar en su vida, tengo una pequeña queja que hacer… ¡Y es que hace mucho viento ahí arriba! Tienes que tener mucho cuidado de que no se te caiga ninguna de tus pertenencias… ¡Anna! ¿Pero qué acabo de decir? ¡Agarra fuerte ese sombrero!

#🕖 For this Weekend's Hashtag Project #WHPInTheStudio we wanted to prove you that for us the street is our favorite workplace. Sometimes we feel like the whole World is our own canvas…! But it's Sunday and it's pretty dark outside. Is it too late already, or do you think we can still make it "on time"? Con motivo del reto semanal de Instagram #WHPinTheStudio queríamos demostraros que la calle es nuestro verdadero lugar de trabajo. ¡A veces incluso sentimos que el mundo entero es tan solo un lienzo en blanco esperando a que hagamos algo con él…! Pero es domingo y se está haciendo de noche. ¿Es demasiado tarde para intentarlo o creéis que todavía estamos "a tiempo"?

#😀 Today, while @anniset and I were looking for the perfect spot to shoot a #WHPISeeFaces entry we discovered that @EsOlympus is giving away a trip to Barcelona in order to attend to the #PlaygroundOpening. You just need to play with perspective and tag them in your picture and you’ll be coming with us! If that doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will! – Hoy, mientras @anniset y yo andábamos en busca del sitio perfecto para participar en el #WHPISeeFaces nos hemos enterado de que #EsOlympus ha organizado un concurso para ir a la inauguración del #PerspectivePlayground! Tan sólo tienes que jugar con la perspectiva, mencionarles y etiquetar con #PlaygroundOpening tu foto para venirte con nosotros, así de fácil. ¡Se nos ha puesto una sonrisa de ventana a ventana!
