Stumbling around on’t internet I happened upon a gallery of images by a chap called Cedric Delsaux.
…it took me a moment to spot the significance.
Cedric Delsaux is a stunning French photographer with a wryly amusing take on life. He’s recently created a series called The Dark Lens, where he’s photographed ordinary daily scenes and added a touch of the Star Wars universe.
I love how adding a crashed X-Wing fighter (geek alert!) into the demolition/wartorn building, giving it a sense of stupidity.
By adding the Dark Lord to a dull photo of a semi finished apartment block I’m there imagining him dreaming up interior design ideas.
cue mechanical breathing “if I paint the roof a light grey, it’ll really open up this place. I must remember to put railings over all the long drops.”
Some of them look like really clever compositing, some model work, and some just a man with expensive fancy dress & geeky pals.
R2 loves those old Citroens. C3PO generally has a bad feeling about them.
