Cedric Delsaux finds true pleasure in maintaining dream and reality within the same frame. Thus, suburban landscapes with their endless parking lots and wasteland zones become – thanks to the Star Wars characters – the grandiose settings of a story in which these sites finally take pride of place. The resulting world teems with detail – it is totally real and yet absolutely false. The production of this “mythology of banality” also brings an element of proximity and reality to cult characters for a whole generation of fans. An imaginary realm has invaded the Earth, giving cause for celebration… and fear!
“I am honored that Cédric Delsaux has brought Star Wars into the world of his photography, and happy that his exceptional work can be presented in this book.” (George Lucas, extract from the preface).
