Cedric-Deslaux

Photographer Cédric Deslaux set off a fanboy frenzy by digitally inserting Star Wars figures into futuristic landscapes of Dubai.

The work, Dark Lens, was exhibited in 2009 at Dubai’s The Empty Quarter. It will be published in a book later this year.

Recently even George Lucas praised the photos. Lucas told The National: “One of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen is in the work of Cédric Delsaux, who has cleverly integrated Star Wars characters and vehicles into stark urban, industrial – but unmistakably earthbound – environments. As novel and disruptive as his images are, they are also completely plausible.”
