lego recreations

Mike Balakov recreates photographs with Legos. some beautiful, some amusing, others quite morbid (like the viet cong captain). thanks for the tip, gelly!



Eddie Adams famous Vietnam war photograph from 1968





Henri Cartier-Bresson's "Behind the Gare Saint Lazare"





Alfred Eisenstaedt's 1945 photograph "V.J. Day Times Square".






Ian Bradshaw's 1974 photograph of streaker Michael O'Brien at Twickenham during the England-France rugby match. (my favorite)





A Lego recreation of Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ goal during the quarter finals of the 1986 World cup between England and Argentina.

the painted on smiles reenacting Adams' piece is extremely unsettling.
