Mike Stimpson Brings Star Wars Lego to Life in His Photography

toy1

If there’s one thing Mike Stimpson excels in, its taking pictures of Star Wars lego. Stimpson has been on Flickr since September of 2006, and has posted six hundred and ninety-two photographs since he first joined. This longtime Flickr user started off his account by posting a mix of nature photography, portraits of material goods, and simple lego figurines; however, the longer he stayed on Flickr, the more he’d share photographs of only lego, usually of the Star Wars persuasion. Stimpson will occasionally still share a nature shot, or perhaps a portrait of himself, but it’s become rare for him to post art that doesn’t involve legos nowadays. While his lego photography first started off as flat and generic, now his photos are detailed and funny. The lego feel brought to life in Stimpson’s photography, as he finds innovative ways to mold them in each picture he takes. Stimpson has also released his first book, Stormtroopers, We Love You, which can be purchased over on blurb for $17.25 (soft cover), $29.31 (hardcover, dust jacket), or $34.58 (hardcover, ImagineWrap).Continue Reading
