Fascinating Photographs Of Abandoned ‘Star Wars’ Movie Sets
New York-based photographer Rä di Martino has curated a series of pictures that brings us a rare glimpse of abandoned Star Wars movie sets, located near Tozeur in central Tunisia.
Eroded by 35 years of dust, sand and wind, these sites are known only by a few locals and are hardly ever visited by anyone—di Martino has managed to find them using pictures from Google Earth.
In addition to the set for Luke Skywalker’s home, the fictional Lars Homestead on Tatooine, the photographer has also located a number of other Star Wars sets, including the abandoned ruins of Mos Espa.
She has documented these sets for posterity with a couple of photographic projects—“No More Stars” and “Every World’s a Stage”.
Star Wars fans, wouldn’t you love to make a pilgrimage to these sites?
