The Art of Star Wars, Edinburgh 2002

In 2002 the City Art Center hosted ‘The Art Of Star Wars exhibition’ this had props and costumes from the Star Wars films, up to the then newly released Episode I

I never thought I would uploaded these photos again, before my over complicated back up regime I thought these were most certainly lost; Indeed almost forgotten about! Looking at the rather embarrassing web cache of this site, one stumbled across these photos again – aye, I’m having them back thank you very much!

Honestly the photos are rubbish, with a low resolution of 640*480, taken with I think Olympus digital camera, with a Smart media card, the camera was extremely basic. the photos are certainly unique, Unfortunately there are only a handful. Plus I took them before I cared about taking a decent photo. Must have forgotten to turn the flash off.
