Photographer of the week: Mike Stimpson

Today is a special feature because Mike Stimpson is not only a great photographer but he is also a Lego lover.

Combining these two hobbies Mike is able to achieve wonderful pictures. Although he doesn’t shoot only Lego creations, I have decided to share with you today a very special collection of his work “Classics in Lego“.

In Classics in Lego is Mike reproduces world most famous images with a high level of fidelity and great care for details.

Before leaving you with the wonderful reproductions I will invite you to visit Mike’s gallery at flickr.
