On October 19th I published an interview with Stéfan Le Dû about his Stormtroopers 365 project. For a year, he published one photo a day on his Flickr account. By doing so, he and other photographers using a this concept inspired many others to try a similar project.
This week I bring you an interview with Kristina Alexanderson, another photographer who uses Stormtrooper figurines in her photo. Despite the fact that they involve the same characters, her photos are completely different from Le Dû’s and reflect her personal style. Alexanderson started her project in 2011 and still creates photos. The albums CClone 365-2011 and The troopers of 2012 have been viewed tens of thousands of times and her project can be followed by Twitter or Facebook. Alexanderson kindly accepted to answer a few questions about her project for The Geek Anthropologist.
In April 2009, Stéfan Le Dû started publishing one Stormtroopers photo on his Flickr account. He would do so for the following year. His project was titled Stormtroopers 365. Until today, his album has been viewed 1,596,919 times on Flickr, and has also been publicized on Twitter, Facebook, through email and RSS feed. The large number of comments on each photo attests to the project’s popularity; the photographer’s work was also featured on various blogs. He graciously accepted to answer a few questions about his project for The Geek Anthropologist.
