“The Wrong Galaxy”
A photoshop mashup series taking famous figures of our real history and replacing them with the faces of Star Wars characters. The series made its debut apperance at the FX Dojo for their Star Wars themed exhibit and then again at the Lyceum later that year.
I am pretty obsessed with this series, and I especially love the parallels between the real people I chose to replace.
For Anakin and Obi-Wan, I chose the two Civil War generals, Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant.
For Padme, the spy and seductress Mati Hari.
For Princess Leia I chose the spunky and rebellious heroine Annie Oakley.
Lastly, Han Solo could only match his swagger with the king of rock and roll, young Elvis.
