Star Wars on Earth

You knew it was coming... only question is why did it take so long? I've been hearing good things about this show in DC.

"Landscapes / Star Wars on Earth" is a solo exhibition featuring two bodies of work by French photographer C├ędric Delsaux. According to the gallery press release:

Delsaux's digital photographs combine myth and reality. The work is subtle and serene in his Landscapes series, and overtly humorous in his Star Wars on Earth Series, in which Delsaux photographs toy figurines and then digitally places them in Parisian suburbs. His training in commercial photography is evident with his play on branding in the Star Wars on Earth series. Conversely, in Landscapes, traces of human existence are either remote or totally absent. In both series, the expansive and dream-like scenes combined with colors that contrast the washy with the bold is what captivates.
The exhibition is at Project 4 in DC through October 20, 2007.
