35/52 | Han Crossing The Alps

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 Thirty Fifth creation in this 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 famous painting, while others will be recreations of various movie poster or album covers and some will be remakes of famous images of the 20th century.

 

“Han Crossing the Alps” is my recreation of Jacque Louis David’s portrait of "Napoleon Crossing the Alps".

 

Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo based upon David’s painting. This is another one that I’ve wanted to do for a while. I have always liked the idea of Han on a Tauntaun replacing Napoleon on his horse. I also feel that both men, Bonaparte and Solo were great strategists in battle so I thought the comparison was valid...

 

Enjoy!
