David Eger, a Canadian photographer, has identified famous photographs and then recreated them with Star Wars action figures. Replicating the entire scene in each photograph, David actually recreated them as actual models and photographed them – this is actually part of a 365 project where he would create an image like this one a day for a year:

The Mona Leia

According to David,

“The original Cloned Photos from my 365 Days of Clones were created, taken and edited on the same date as the original photograph or on the birthday of the photographer or artist who created the image. There were; however, many images that I missed, didn’t have the time to create or hadn’t thought about that I have now begun to go back and create in my new series. The photo project began on February 23, 2011 and is ongoing.”

Enjoy this collection of the art of David Eger (with the original that inspired his work at next). Check out for more on his website: http://www.365daysofclones.com/.
