The Secret Lives Of Star Wars Characters


Scottish photographer David Gilliver probably loves Star Wars as much as he loves photography! Using a variety of props and objects usually intended for doll houses, and shot in his own home studio, his latest photo series portrays the characters and their daily lives in a humorous new light. If you’ve ever wondered what a storm trooper gets up to on his day off, this should give you a pretty good idea!

David says: "I first photographed Star Wars figures during my Fine Art Photography degree at the Glasgow School of Art. I got told off by my tutors, probably because they felt the work was silly and devoid of any real meaning.
