Taking Star Wars back in time when black and white photography reigned supreme.

Remember local photographer and hardcore Star Wars fan, Zahir Batin? A year ago, he released a set of images depicting the kampung lifestyle by using Star Wars toys

Against the rural and agronomic backdrop of paddy fields, plant life and stagnant waters, he has a way of bringing the fictional cult classic to life.

He's back with more! The time around, Zahir showcased the film’s iconic characters through a series of images inspired by his old family portraits. The results are genius, to say the least!

The images are so lifelike, you wouldn't be able to guess that they're toys

'Hey soldier! If you don't smile, I'll force choke you to your death. Got it?'
