If you‘re a fan of Star Wars and LEGO, this is your dream come true. Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki unites these two passions of his in playful and imaginative dioramas.
Vesa Lehtimäki uses LEGO minifigures, baking soda and forced perspective to create original miniature scenes from such epic movies as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and The Lord of the Rings. However, he certainly has his heart set on a galaxy far, far away. After experimenting with plaster, powdered sugar and flour, baking soda turned out to be the best substitute for snow, essential to bring the ever-snowy planet Hoth back in action.
It is important to note, that most of Lehtimäki‘s dioramas don‘t reenact the real movie scenes, rather they are original pieces of art, combining novelty with familiar elements from our pop culture. His photographs are unique and incredibly realistic – they often look like real movie stills from deleted scenes.
Lehtimäki‘s first miniture photography attempt was back in 2009 when he created the dioramas to document his children‘s toys. As the response on Flickr was positive, Lehtimäki , to our joy, continued his creative journey.
Here‘s a set of Lehtimäki‘s best “never-before-seen” movie scenes from Star Wars and Indiana Jones starring LEGO figurines. Enjoy!
