Making the Unthinkable Real

Dale MayDarth Vader posing in front of a Chanel logo and C-3PO bathed in Louis Vuitton are just two of the characters featured in the series LEGO Wars, where Star Wars figurines fuse with the world of fashion. The artist behind the camera is Dale May, an award-winning advertising, entertainment, and editorial photographer who has been creating iconic images for over 18 years. “Combining his background in painting and color theory, lighting and post production, Dale works with the inspiration to make the unthinkable real, as well as believable.”

Dale May’s love of stylized fashion photography makes this LEGO Star Wars series clever and surprising. Come by the Samuel Owen Gallery at 46 Center Street this week to see Darth Vader’s X-Ray and Princess Leia giving a playful wink. The Artist Reception will be held on Friday, July 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, with drinks by Cisco Brewery and music by Audio Architects.
