Photographer creates realistic silhouettes of Star Wars characters using backlit toys

In his breathtaking series Le Cosmos de Star Wars, Parisian freelance photographer and graphic designer Sébastien DEL GROSSO takes photographs of backlit Star Wars toys to create dramatic silhouettes. He then adds drawings and illustrations to complete each artwork, creating a collection of images that pay homage to the old Republic.

You can expect to see all of your old favourites, from Yoda and Darth to some of the latest droids – all looking as though they're the real deal. But he doesn't stop there. Browse his portfolio on Behance and you'll discover tributes to some of the world's best loved superheroes and video game characters.

If you'd like to understand more about his process, then you can view his tutorial on Flickr. Or follow his latest works on Instagram and Facebook.
