An Earth Where the Droids Feel at Home — Cédric Delsaux's "Dark Lens"
Said the French photographer in a December 8, 2011 New York Times story,
"'My first intention wasn't to produce a series on 'Star Wars,' but to photograph locations that are the makeup of our modernity: parking lots, peripheral zones, wastelands, forgotten places, of both beauty and ugliness, common and mad,' Mr. Delsaux said by e-mail. 'Nevertheless, something was missing, my images were flat, déjà vu. I then had the idea to add these sci-fi characters, with the immediate effect of making my primal sensations stand out, the fantastical nature of the characters invading the whole frame, both universes harmoniously coming together.'"
Much of his work was collected and published in late 2011 in "Cédric Delsaux: Dark Lens."
Above and below, exemplars.
