Although I have had these photos knocking around on my laptop for a little while now, I thought I would post them in order to vary the content of High-Rise a little. Cedric Delsaux brings the Star Wars Universe tantalising close to reality by inserting characters and vehicles from the films into photographs of a Dubai under construction.
Dubai itself looks fantastic. The photos are very well produced and oddly static, sheer pornography for anyone who, like me, enjoys absorbing every detail of a particularly grotty alleyway. As well as the Dark Lens collection, Cedric Delsaux has taken many other incredible landscape photographs, including some of the best I have seen of post-fallout Pripyat.
