Dramatic LEGO Recreations of Star Wars and Indiana Jones

Helsinki-based Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimki, aka Avanaut, captures cinematic shots of LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones toys. The photographer uses his creative eye and skilled hand to snap shots of the mini figurines against real-life backdrops, resulting in dramatic portraits of these fictional characters in spectacular and often lively landscapes.

Stormtroopers, tauntauns, and AT-ATs all make an appearance in Lehtimki’s series of images. Each creature and machine is given a sense of personality and emotion through the photographer’s keen eye for composition and expert distribution of light. Additionally, there is a sense of motion in many of the images that take place in the snow. Using baking powder as the bed of snow and white flurries that sprinkle the air, Lehtimki creatively adds a realistic depiction of Hoth, the fictional planet cloaked in snow and ice.
