A few years ago, I made a small series of Lego Star Wars shots with my cell phone from the Star Wars advent calendar and fell in love with these little minifigs and bricks! Since then I've been trying to re-imagine the characters and different locations from the world of Star Wars through my Lego and Hasbro action figures.

I would like to express my gratitude to the team Star Wars for creating such a fantastic worlds to be an inspiration for my humble toy photography today. They have used miniature landscapes and models in a many ways while they created one of the greatest trilogy ever. And all this happened long time ago in a galaxy far away...

    Michael Paul Smith says:

    " When I was young, before Legos were even dreamed about, I would set up my little plastic people and vehicles, along with cardboard boxes, imagining epic adventures. They were the most amazing stories that looked just like the movies.
    Over 60 years later, I happened upon j5k's ART and like the flash of a blaster, it occurred to me he was actually creating what I had only imagined as a child.
    After viewing every one of his photographs, I found myself giddy with delight accompanied by a profound sense of awe and respect.
    Using only the most minimum of props, lighting and basic special effects, j5k has created scenes that rival the best cinematographers in the business.
    His compositions bring to mind Ridley Scott, Coppola and Spielberg.
    But wait, there's more. Not only is there drama, suspense, intrigue and tension in his images, there is Humor.
    The vast ocean of the Internet stretches in every direction with the occasional island of something new appearing on the horizon.
    j5k is one of those islands, but from what I can see, it has the real potential
    of becoming a continent."

    "j5k is an absolutely hard-working and committed person. His shots are very well thought of and have the cinematic feeling to it."
