Now I’ve always loved Star Wars art, and the folks at GeekTyrant reminded me again how amazing this franchise is. Yes I’m biased but I don’t really care.
I love these pieces and I’ve actually seen them before and Cédric Delsaux is one of my favourite photographers.
“French photographer Cédric Delsaux started out taking photos of what he calls “the peripheral zones” of modern cities – wastelands, empty deserts, scrapyards. Yet something was missing – and then he had the idea of placing characters from Star Wars into the images, giving C3PO and the Millennium Falcon modern settings that somehow seamlessly fit.
His haunting photos help us reflect on the urban environments of Paris and Dubai, the addition of a few stormtroopers and Darth Vader laying bare the effect of these domineering concrete landscapes.
George Lucas calls them ‘one of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen.'”
Amazing stuff. And looks like George Lucas agrees. Find Dark Lens on Amazon to get these awesome prints.
