Star Wars Photo Fantasies

by Jefe on March 5, 2011

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few month’s now. The artist Cedric Delsaux uses his own pictures of cityscapes as the backgrounds for sci-fi fantasies and then digitally inserts Star Wars film characters into his urban realms. The artist’s Dark Lens series started out with his views of warehouses, harbors, and industrial spaces in the suburbs of Paris. He found those pictures a little too ordinary so he then added Darth Vader, R2-D2, Jabba the Hutt, and other Star Wars figures and vehicles to the settings and presto: they were suddenly fantastic!

Cedric Delsaux's "Dark Lens"

From Paris he continued the series in Lille — a medieval city in France — and then Dubai. In case you were wondering, he had the blessing of George Lucas (which has been notoriously tough to get in the past). While the gallery show at Galerie ACTE 2 in Paris is now over, the first link in this post shows you 15 different and great photos. Enjoy.
