star wars recreations of famous photographs

a photo series by david eger recreates famous photos and paintings with star wars figurines and handcrafted sets above: ‘troopers raising the flag on iwo jima’ (joe rosenthal’s ‘raising the flag on iwo jima’) all images © david eger star wars recreations of famous photographs

as part of a year-long project ‘365 days of clones‘, canadian art teacher david eger has recreated famous photographs and paintings using star wars figurines. the scenography is done in real life rather than in photoshop, in a project that was eger’s response to his new year’s resolution to pursue personal photographic endeavours more often.

eger photographed each piece on a date relevant to the original work: the anniversary of the date the photograph was taken in the case of most contemporary pieces; or the birth or death dates of the artist for images like his recreations of pablo picasso’s ‘guernica’ or leonardo da vinci’s ‘vitruvian man’.

  • These photos are great, but the symbol on the flag (first photo) is incorrect. That symbol is of the Galactic Empire, created some time after the Clone Wars. Even though the symbol of the Grand Army of the Republic is pretty much alike, it isn’t the same. Despite that, I loved the photos!

  • Way more art in this than in Damien Hirst’s ‘Knocked-up of the South’ statue in today’s designboom.
    Good thing MLK was changed from Darth Vader; that wouldn’t have worked.
    and I hope ObiWan was barefoot on Abbey Rd. like the original.

    Great stuff.

  • You don’t need to see his justification. These aren’t the photos you’re looking for. Move along now…
