Exploring Their Softer Side: Stormtroopers Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before (PHOTOS)Monica Bielanko
Ever wondered what Stormtroopers do when they’re not trying to kill members of the Rebel Alliance at the command of the Sith Lord?
Well, according to JD Hancock, self-proclaimed kid at heart, they like nothing more than a rousing game of Twister, goofing on Darth Vader and exploring their softer sides. That is, of course, after they finish their chores.
Hancock takes macro photos of his favorite childhood pop culture icons but with his own special twist. He puts the characters in the most unlikely situations. The result is a sort of comical, behind the scenes look at the lives of some of the world’s most beloved characters. Hancock tells Yahoo he goes out of his way to make his photos fun and whimsical. “Trying to show someone something they’ve seen before but in a completely different way and in a way that hopefully makes them smile.”
And smile you will. Hancock has a ton of photos on his Flickr page featuring various superheroes and other fun stuff, but it’s his Stormtrooper series that really made me giggle.
