Today is Star Wars Day – May the 4th be with you! – and I thought it would be timely to share one of my favourite fan projects: Vesa Lehtimäki’s Star Wars photos.
Looking at this photo makes my jaw drop. Is it the real deal – did the Millenium Falcon actually land in Helsinki? Would love to hop on for a space jump to Mos Eisley!
Internet tells me that Lehtimäki, a Finnish illustrator and designer, borrowed his son’s toys, placed them in real-life situation and did some clever photoshopping. I can only imagine the time and effort that went into making these unbelievable scenes believable. Hats off!
Don’t forget to check out Lehtimäki’s Flickr for some more fabulous shots, tell us what you think. May the force be with you on May the 4th!
