Star Wars on Earth
In French photographer Cédric Delsaux's large format photographs, Star Wars action figures and the suburbs of Paris seamlessly integrate into beautifully cinematic tableaux's. The work is subtle and serene with a sly humor that plays-to and forgoes any known nostalgia of the widely popular Star Wars franchise.
Cedric Delsaux lives and works in Paris, France. He has been a full-time commercial photographer since 2003 while continuously working on his personal artistic practice of which the Star Wars series is included. Delsaux won the Kodak prize for landscapes and architecture with his Star Wars on Earth series in 2005. This will be the second US exhibition of Delsaux's photography. In 2006, Delsaux was selected in the Leurzer's Archive as one of the "200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide."
