Vesa Lehtimäki brings the Star-Wars-Universe to life with Lego and Baking Powder


It is remarkable what you can achieve with limited resources, if you just give free rein to your creativity. Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki already started using his kids‘ toys as extras in improvised film scenes in 2009. The highly positive feedback prompted Lehtimäki to do a genuine photo project out of this small pastime. Besides Star Wars, he also shot imagined scenes from Indiana Jones and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. But his favorite subject is the icy planet Hoth from “The Empire Strikes Back”, the fifth part of the Star Wars saga. The snow is reconstructed with baking powder, Lego figures of his kids slip into the role of clone trooper & co. 😉

Besides Lego and baking powder, Lehtimäki especially loves to photoshop Star Wars spaceships into natural as well as urban sceneries. Ever seen a “Y Wing” in the parking lot? 😉
