David Eger, a photography teacher, decided to take his Star Wars love and obsession to the next level, making something really useful of it by creating ‘Cloned Photos’, a mini-series that was born from his 365 Days of Clones project, which is about Stormtroopers recreating iconic images.
Iwo Jima Flag
The original photo was taken by Joe Rosenthal, capturing the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima.
A Royal Kiss
Reenacting the kiss between Prince William and Kate Middleton on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Death of a Clone Trooper
Recapturing Robert Capa’s immortal photo taken in 1936, probably the most famous picture from the Spanish civil war.
A single stormtrooper in his own version of Tianamen square, trying to stop a column of tanks.
Ilan Macmillan’s photo of the Beatles crossing the street, the cover to their Abbey Road album.
The Cloned Kiss
The Kiss was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt the day World War II ended in 1945.
On a Skyscraper
On September 29, 1932, Charles C. Ebbets, not Lewis Hine, took the famous moment of having lunch while working on building a skyscraper.
Star Wars Segregation
C.T. Phone Home
Darth Vader in Bed
Recreating the famous Annie Leibovitz photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, taken just before his death.
Maybe the most famous photo in the history of boxing and maybe all sports, as Muhammad Ali just knocked out Sonny Liston.
