Iconic Images… In Lego
A year or so ago, someone sent me a pastiche of one of Henri Cartier-Bresson‘s most well-known images… in Lego, which I was thought was excellent. Since then, I’ve seen more Lego reconstructions, but it was only when Simon Parry sent me the link to Mike Stimpson‘s website this week that I was able to piece together more information about this highly unusual, but also highly amusing series.
He has covered many of the most easily recognised images from the history of photography by artists as diverse as Capa and Warhol, as well as iconic images such as the Tiannamen Square protester, the butt-scratching “tennis girl”, the supposed “Bigfoot” emerging from the treeline, the moon landing etc.
Stimpson has even produced a series of Star Wars-inspired images.

PS. I did ask for permission to reproduce these images but I didn’t get a response – so I’m posting them anyway.
