Stark urban landscapes injected with famous Star Wars characters? That’s the theme of “The Dark Lens” by French photographer Cédric Delsaux. “I felt the ‘Star Wars’ characters were allowing me to render the reality of our world in more ways than any so-called objective shot ever could” said Delsaux in an interview with the New York Times. “Expressing reality through fiction could actually be my photographic credo.”
You can see Delsaux’s “Star Wars” work in his book “Cédric Delsaux: Dark Lens”, which includes an introduction written by George Lucas himself. Many of the photographs can also be seen on Delsaux’s website, www.cedricdelsaux.com.
