“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” oh, BS, who am I kidding. It’s just a desert and it’s now, as opposed to some years back when they were filming the damned thing.

New York-based visual artist and filmmaker Rä di Martino has taken a series of eerie and beautiful photos that capture scenes of abandoned Hollywood film sets. Martino spent over a year traveling throughout the desert towns of Morocco and Tunisia hunting down the old Star Wars sets. ‘No More Stars’ showcases the backdrop of Luke Skywalker’s home on the fictional desert planet Tatooine, its massive structures that now stand like ancient ruins forgotten by time and man.

Heart-breaking for some, I’m sure. An additional dozen or so photos via Abandoned Stars Wars sets in the desert | Photo Gallery – Yahoo! News.
