French photographer Cedric Delsaux sees a different setting for the Star Wars saga when he looks through the lens-a post-apocalyptic wasteland full of ruined buildings and bleak landscapes.
It's the kind of place that seems perfect for devotees of the Dark Side, a world which leaves most droids feeling a bit lost. Here's a bit on how this photo series came to be:
In his series ‘The Dark Lens’, Delsaux first set out to highlight the decay of the post-apocalyptic modern world, but found the landscapes too plain.
That was when he incorporated notable scenes and characters from Star Wars, with the help of CGI maestro Pierrick Gueneugue, bringing to life two distant worlds.
We've featured the works of Cedric Delsaux here on Neatorama over the years (Link and Link), and now he's back because his series The Dark Lens has been put together in a book, which features a forward by George Lucas (link).
What an interesting way to put a spin on a sub-genre and sci-fi series which are in danger of becoming an artistic cliche. And I quite like the idea of Darth Vader lording over the reconstruction of a massive skyscraper (Death Star Towers, maybe?), while Jabba the Hut is holed up in some rat infested slums, conducting his dirty business from the shadows.
