Today is “Star Wars Day” so “May The Fourth Be With You” LOL. I realize that its a corny statement but hey, the world of geek rallies behind it and so do I. In honor of this special day for one of my very favorite films, I dug up some old photos from the 2002 exhibit “Star Wars: The Magic Of Myth” that I attended with friends at the Brooklyn Museum. The exhibit was fantastic and showcased costumes, models and puppets from all of the “Star Wars” films up until that time which would have been “Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace” as the latest since “Star Wars: Episode II: Attack Of The Clones” had only just opened a couple of weeks before we attended this exhibit. Armed with the photographic technology of the time my friend James and I wandered and snapped a lot of photos which you can see below. The order is not as uniform as I would do nowadays but remember this was from a time before I did the photo journalist stuff. Hope you enjoy the presentation.
We decided to return to the exhibit once more and try and secure even more pictures which is where I will be continuing on from at this point. It was really an overwhelming geek out experience and I was so happy to be here.
I’m going to pause right but will be back later on today with the rest of this photographic reflection. Please turn off your lightsabers and secure them safely on your belt for the time being until they are needed once again.
