Editorial Reviews

Review

The images simmering in the French photographer Cédric Delsaux's "Dark Lens" series are an unsettling confluence of hyper-real cityscapes, a post-postmodern sense of humor ... and characters from "Star Wars." (DANA JENNINGS The New York Times 2011-12-08)

About the Author

Né en 1974, Cédric Delsaux vit et travaille à Paris. Après des études de Lettres et de Cinéma, il rejoint d’abord le monde de la publicité. Depuis 2002, il se consacre entièrement à la photographie. Avec le premier volet de son travail sur Star Wars, The Dark Lens, il remporte la Bourse du Talent en 2005. Ses travaux personnels font l’objet de nombreuses expositions aux États-Unis, en Chine, en Allemagne, en Angleterre, et en Pologne. Son travail Nous resterons sur terre, publié aux éditions Verlhac en octobre 2008, explore le lien ambivalent de l’Homme face à la nature. Il est également publié aux USA chez Random House sous le titre A Common Destiny.

Format: Hardcover
I had the pleasure of seeing some of these gorgeous images in a larger format, in person, at Celebration V (the SW convention in Orlando in 2010). Some of the poster size prints simply leave you stunned. The way Cedric Delsaux seamlessly inserts an aspect from the Star Wars universe into our world is just unbelievably....awesome - for lack of a better, more eloquent word. My favorite has to be the AT-AT walkers (the Imperial military vehicles from the Hoth battle at the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back) looming out of the mist over two deserted elevated freeways/highways. It's eerie and a little terrifying in a 'what if the Empire came to Earth' kind of way. I've been waiting for this book to be published and available since 8/2010 and I can't wait to get my hands on it now that it's out. I only wish I could afford the collectors limited edition signed version. Congratulations, Monsieur Delsaux on an incredible job. If you do more delving into the SW-verse, I will gladly follow.

This book is amazing, the work inside is flawless. Im not sure if its cgi or he shoots the background and subjects separately. But either way it looks amazing. Seeing characters and vehicles from the Star Wars franchise in modern day cities is a beautiful. Im also a professional photographer and the whole book is truly inspiring!

Holly smokes this book is cool. I bought it as a gift for a Star Wars/photography fan. One of the coolest and original books out there. Well worth it.

Simply fascinating. The detail and creativity is mind-blowing. A cool addition for Star Wars and/or photography buffs. It's cool to see everyday scenes superimposed with Star Wars themes.
