13/52 | Our Only Hope
52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.
Today marks the thirteenth creation in another year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be a recreation from a movie poster, while others will be recreations of famous images of the 20th century or album covers. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!
“Our Only Hope” is my recreation of the infamous "Forrest Gump" movie poster. Forrest Gump tells a tale of a naive and slow-witted native of Alabama who witnesses and is some cases influences, some of the defining events of the latter half of the 20th century.
Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo based upon Forrest Gump. I’ve always thought that the slogan for the film “The world will never be the same once you’ve seen it through the eyes of Forrest Gump” was how I felt after watching Star Wars for the first time. After seeing all the adventures Luke and his friends had in the Star Wars trilogy, I’ve always believed that somewhere out there something similar could be happening and to be apart of it like Forrest or Luke would be an adventure in itself...
