Iâ€™m not always sure of my inspiration for projects, but for this Â shoot, I knew I wanted to be a part of something big and culturally relevant; Â I wanted to be a part of something greater than myself. Â I wanted to create images of the beloved characters in the Star Wars movie series but in a way that was unique, giving the viewer a different perspective. Â While in retouching, Jamie (my digital genius and Star Wars fanatic),Â likened these images toÂ Hans Solo being frozen in Carbonite. Â While not frozen in Carbonite, these collectables are encapsulated and sealed beneath a sheet of latex. As Iâ€™ve shared these images over the past few weeks with colleagues and friends the reactions have all been the same; people are blown away and theyâ€™re excited. Â Most importantly, these images make them happy. In the end, what I did was bring a smile to peopleâ€™s faces. I guess thatâ€™s really why I shoot things â€“ to tell stories that don’t make you think too much, they just make you feel.
