Secret Lives of Star Wars Villains

Conquering the galaxy isn’t all drama and highlights. The untold tales of Star Wars villains, as imagined by the clever photographer David Gilliver at Design You Trust.


“Tiny Storm Troopers and a mini Darth Vader are captured doing everyday activities – from taking a bath, to wrapping presents. Scottish Artist and Photographer, David Giliver created these scenes over a period of two years using toys and miniature props. Here: Two storm troopers lie in a bath.”

Stormtroopers on Their Day Off

Ever wonder what Imperial Stormtroopers do when they’re not manning Death Stars, searching for missing droids, or getting bested by fuzzy little Ewoks? Well, artist Jorge Pérez Higuera shows us, thanks to the folks at Bored Panda.

I’m Jorge Pérez Higuera a visual artist based on Guadalajara, Spain. I began this project in 2012 as my final year project for Photography at University but, to be honest, I no longer remember how I came up with the initial idea.

I chose Stormtroopers for several reasons. First of all, they have the capacity to be liked by several generations because the films were made in the late 70`s, late 90`s and now they are coming back. Moreover, the stormtroopers have become a pop icon that we are all familiar with and that is why I think we can identify ourselves with them. Lastly, I like stormtroopers because we don’t know their gender, so is the spectators`imagination in order to know if they are males or females. The hardest part in this project is the preparation of each set-up. This means a lot of hours photo shooting and more hours in photoshop.

Finally, I want to say that the project is still a work in progress but I hope to end it before this year ends. May the force be with you!
