Pictures, brick by brick

(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 105mm macro. Exposure: 250th sec. @ f/22 w/ Dyna-Lite strobes. ISO: 100)

British photographer Mike Stimpson, aka Balakov, is a fan of classic photographs. He’s also nuts about Legos. He’s combined his love of photography and a passion for the plastic building blocks and made a series of re-creations of famous pictures, only using Legos minifigures. Classics from Robert Capa to W. Eugene Smith, from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Yosuf Karsh and others, Stimpson has remade their signature photos in exacting detail (well, as exact as you can get with Legos).  As a photographer you find inspiration from the greats but try not to copy them. Stimpson has found a way to do both.
