New York based photographer Dale May is internationally renowned for his commercial photography, from celebrity portraits to advertising. His Lego Wars series takes a slight departure from his usual subjects. A photographic study of popular culture combined with commercial branding and a bit of nostalgia, May revisits the tiny plastic Lego toys of his childhood and photographs them to stand tall and demand attention.
These prints are crafted in archival acrylic to give the work a high-polished glossiness reminiscent of the Lego pieces themselves. Very slick.
The Lego Wars are being exhibited at Samuel Owen Gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut starting December 15th through January 19, 2012.
