Images: Star Wars invades Vancouver in series by photo-artist

In the images appears the city has fallen to the Galactic Empire, but can they afford to move here?

During the pandemic, people found lots of different ways to stay busy.

For concert photographer Christopher Edmonstone there were a few projects he started on, including bringing the events of a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away to Vancouver's front door.

In other words, he brought Star Wars to Vancouver's shores with some fun editing, worthy of Revenge of the Fifth.

In some images, that's literally what happened, with AT-AT walkers strolling along the beach or other coastal points. There's also a crashed X-wing, a couple of scouts causing havoc outside of the Vogue Theatre and a Star Destroyer unleashing TIE fighters on CRAB Park.

For Edmonstone the doom and gloom of the pandemic and news at the time inspired him.

"Essentially with the seemingly endless barrage of troubling news that continues to this day, I was trying to inject a bit humour by positing what the next crisis would be. I thought the arrival of Imperial Forces would be a good fit," he says.

In total, he put together 13 images on his website.
