About mydaywithleo

There are so many ways to describe Instagram sensation @mydaywithleo that it’s probably best to check it out yourself. The “satirical photographer” and “stop motion enthusiast” has 170K+ followers who love his creative photo collages and videos, which usually include a photograph of a celebrity covering a live person’s face. Joel Strong (the man holding the celebrity head cutouts in each post) originally used only pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio, but as his account grew so did his celebrities of interest. While the faceless people in Joel’s videos may often be strangers he meets on the streets of NYC, you’ll recognize everyone he superimposes on them, from Beyoncé to Bob Ross. Plus, if you’re as obsessed with sitcom moms as Joel, you’ll love the 2018 swimsuit calendar he made.
