I love the work of Finnish artist Vesa Lehtimäki aka Avanaut, a brilliant illustrator and photographer who likes to take pictures of his kids' toys in his spare time. Check out these series of Star Wars toys set in the real world. Some of them look so real that you may think he actually build 1:1 reproductions of the spaceships. Flying ones.
Y-Wing fighters on Earth
The Millennium Falcon on Earth
The falcon in space
Various spaceships in clean rooms
His photos of action figures are brilliant too:
This is part of a new series in which we are featuring futuristic, alien-looking or just plain awesome photos of landscapes, objects and cityscapes. If you are a photographer with such work, please drop me a line here.
