14/52 | Han Solo's Day Off

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 fourteenth 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!

 

“Han Solo’s Day Off” is my recreation of the 1980’s cult classic "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off" movie poster. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off tells the story of a high school student; Ferris Bueller, who convinces his parents that he is sick and cannot go to school. He then picks up his girlfriend and best friend up at school; posing as his girlfriend’s father. The trio then takes in the sights and sounds of Chicago; including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Sears Tower, Wrigley Field and of course singing to Twist and Shout during a parade!

 

Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo based upon Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I have always thought that both characters; Solo and Bueller, were very clever at outwitting their enemies. I also thought that Solo’s classic pose of leaning against Chewbacca would look good in place of Bueller.

 

Enjoy!
