Photographing pets can be challenging, and photographing wildlife from a distance can be a tedious and time-consuming process. But, what happens when you want a wild animal to play Star Wars with your action figure collection? Photographer and Lego master Chris McVeigh was determined to show us.
Armed with a camera, action figures, and a whole lot of nuts (we’re assuming it took balls, too), Chris forged a kinship with a harmonious collective of chipmunks living in his parent’s backyard. Taking advantage of their depressed socioeconomic status, he was able to lure them into being performers in his own take on the classic saga…without having to composite any images.
