Classics in Lego

Flat,550x550,075,f
We’ve featured plenty of things made from or inspired by Lego, but none has appealed to me quite as much as the Classic in Lego series of photographs.

Taken by Mike Stimpson, the images are recreations of iconic photographs and works of art, but made from Lego. Pictured above is the classic John and Yoko Amsterdam Bed-In. Other recreations include classic pieces of photography such as Charles Ebbets 1932 “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper”, Alfred Eisenstaedt’s 1945 photograph “V.J. Day Times Square” and Albert Korda’s photograph of Che Guevara. The images are amusing (so much so I spent a whole morning looking at them), but also show a definite respect for the originals in how carefully they have been constructed and shot to match the originals. Once you’ve found your favourites you can have them printed as cards, posters or canvas or framed prints.
