Kristina Alexanderson Talks to 8BitDad About Her Stormtrooper-Dad Photos

Photographer Kristina Alexanderson has made probably one of the coolest sets of photos ever. Called the “CClones 365-2011 Project,” it depicts Star Wars Stormtroopers and Clone Troopers as parents.

The Flickr set shows the Storm Troopers doing normal day-to-day activities with their kids. The first Storm Trooper toy Alexanderson used was her son’s action figure. After that, she bought others, as well as LEGO minifigs to use as children.

You can see some of Alexanderson’s pics that we like and a short Q&A with her after the break.

By  •  News

Some Michigan fathers, along with lawyers and lawmakers are fighting a 55 year old law that binds a child conceived during a marriage to that marriage – even if the child was conceived outside of that marriage. Need a moment to sort that one out? Thought so.
