I’ve blogged about LEGO before (and I’ll probably blog about the company again). The staying power of the almighty LEGO is stickier than your fingers after eating a huge wad of cotton candy. Given this fact, and that Photo History was one of my favorite courses in college, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to blog about UK photographer Mike Stimpson, when I saw a story about him on Wired.com.
Stimpson has combined his photographic skill with a love for LEGOs to create a number of photographs that mimic the works of classic photographers such as Alfred Eisenstaedt and Charles Ebbets. The quirk? His photos are scenes build from small plastic bricks. Cute? Yes. Buzz-worthy? Definitely.
Below are a few examples of his photos (compared with the originals). Some of these you may recognize To check out more of Mike’s photos, visit his Flickr page.
