Eger’s 365 Days of Clones project features the well-loved sci-fi instalment and their signature characters in his photographs that recreate some of history’s most famous (and infamous!) photographs. Iconic images such as the Abbey Road cover shot, Robert Capa’s Falling Soldier and the pop art of Andy Warhol lend their artistic and historic value to the project.
Not only did Eger recreate the iconic photos but he did so with deft attention to detail. The Iwo Jima photograph recreation shows Storm Troopers planting their own flag with the same cloudy and smoky background. Alfred Eisenstaedt’s iconic “The Kiss” is complete with the merrymaking crowd while Charles Ebbet would have been proud if he was a Star Wars fanatic with the recreation of the “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” photograph. The dizzying heights and monochrome look of Ebbet’s photograph are just captured by Eger perfectly.
You can find Eger’s complete collection on his Flickr photostream. Just be prepared to swoon at his galactic recreations.
Between this October and March next year, the public will finally be able to see for the first time what is now believed to be the oldest existing movie starring a cast of black actors. Details about the exhibit after the jump!

Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java.
