Classic photographs recreated in Lego 

Video game programer Mike Stimpson loves Lego. He also loves photography. Combining his two passions has resulted in a series of fascinating images that recreate iconic photographs with Lego blocks.  

On his website Stimpson talks about why he creates his Lego images:

'I enjoyed not only the taking of the photographs, but researching classic images and the stories behind them, the things most people wouldn't generally know.

Now I enjoy the fact that I'm bringing classic photographs and photographers to a new audience through my LEGO recreations, and hopefully that might get a few more people interested in finding out more about some of the world's great photographers.'

From Henri Cartier-Bresson to W. Eugene Smith, see if you can recognize the work of some photography's greats through his unique point of view in our gallery. We also included links to Stimpson's Flickr site for each photograph. There you can see the original image and his set up shots.
