“Over the years, many artists have interpreted Star Wars in ways that extend well beyond anything we saw in the films. One of the most unique and intriguing interpretations that I have seen is in the work of Cedric 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.”
– George Lucas
Well, these are awesome. French artist Cedric Delsaux has been dragging the used-future of the Star Wars universe down to our plane with his stunning photography since 2005, and we’ve got a nice selection right here.
Shot mostly in Delsaux’s native Paris, and Dubai, there’s a lot of great imagery at play. The Millenium Falcon blows past a construction site and hides in a hole dug for laying foundation. Battle droids sit listlessly around like Jarhead in dilapidated vehicles, lightsabers get littered around the rural France.
Here’s a quick slideshow of DSY’s favourites, and you can check out the whole starkly industrial set over at Cedric Delsaux’s website.
