The following photos are a result of the efforts and creativity of advertisement photographer Cédric Delsaux. This collection was released in three batches with the first one in 2005, the second in 2007 and the latest in 2010.
These pictures have been, lately, re-posted by several sources and went viral with little reference to its creator.
The concept of the photos is based on the idea of picking certain locations on Earth that fit with the character and feel of the Star Wars universe, to later have several Star Wars characters, vehicles and features super imposed into them.
Dubai has been used as a significant setting for his work so have fun guessing the locations of each shot, UAE residents!
Now, I did not bother discovering when the Dubai photos were taken as they seem to have been shot during the heyday of heavy construction works at the Jumeirah Lakes Towers and Dubai Marina bound areas.
