Thomas Dagg's photos may look like the Earth has been taken over by the Galactic Empire, but they're more about what it is like when Star Wars invades the mind of a young child who's a fervent fan. Dagg was one of those kids, big time, and he spent the last two years on this personal project, aptly named Star Wars, to turn memories of his childhood imagination into these hyper-realistic visions. "If there was a blizzard outside, I always thought of Hoth," the 24-year-old Toronto photographer told Wired in an interview published today, "If I saw a jogger, I would imagine them with Yoda on their back like Luke Skywalker. That was my childhood."
