Artist creates Star Wars recreations of famous photographs with figurines
New- age geeks are exceedingly influenced by Star Wars that they like to see everything, even the remarkable real life events in the light of the epic space theme. One such self-proclaimed geek is Canadian art teacher David Eger, who as part of a yearlong project ‘365 days of clones’, has recreated famous photographs, and paintings using star wars figurines. And, mind you, it is no silly photoshop work, rather it is a real life set-up with figurines and all. What adds special charm to the whole thing is the fact that 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 more contemporary pieces, or the birth or death dates of the artists.
Some of the remarkable photographs that are also interesting to see are Abbey Road, A royal kiss, Gandhi, Million Trooper March, and the cloned kiss.
