Abandoned Star Wars Film Sets in the Tunisian Desert

Visual artist and filmmaker Rä di Martino visited the Tunisian desert in order to capture the abandoned film set of the legendary Star Wars film series. The project began when the photographer learned it was common practice to leave film sets without tearing them down to let them crumble over time like ancient ruins. With a bit of luck and the help of a local police station, Martino was able to find what remains of Luke Skywalker’s childhood home and capture what you see above.
