Photo: Cédric Deslaux at The Empty Quarter

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.”
