365 Days of Clones by David Eger

My brother David is currently doing a 365 day photography project involving Clone Troopers from the Star Wars movies. While he is not the first one to photograph Star Wars figurines, there are some distinctions; his photographs are of Clone Troopers (episodes 2-3) and not Stormtroopers (episodes 4-6), and he creates images relating to that day’s historical events whenever possible. An obsessive fan of Star Wars since he was little, he’s been wanting to do this series for a long time.
