Star Wars In Real Life by Thomas Dagg

Star Wars In Real Life 2

Imagine a world where fiction becomes reality. A world in which oddity becomes the norm. Would it be peaceful? Colorful? What about creating a world in which gravity has no definition and pleasure is limitless?

Those are probably not the exact questions Canadian photographer Thomas Dagg had in mind when he was a child, but now that he’s older and more knowledgeable in his craft, creating scenes from his adolescent imaginations does not seem so impossible anymore. Dagg brings to life a world where Star Wars and reality emerge. By using forced perspective, Dagg has been able to turn his childhood toys into realistic additions to his black and white photos. To do this, he used different focal lengths to shoot the real life shots and 5-inch toys so that they matched perspectives and angles. It’s pretty amazing to see how ‘realistic’ these shots actually look considering that Dagg “wanted to feel like these could actually happen since in [his] head at 8 they definitely did”.
