Lifestyle Photos Featuring Wookiees

DxdKIJe

Portland, Oregon-based photographer and art director Mako Miyamoto has an ongoing project that consists of lifestyle photographs… of Wookiees. The photographs have scenes and aesthetics you might see in some kind of clothing catalog or marketing campaign, except all of the models are sporting giant furry Chewbacca faces.

Activities seen in the images range from the mundane (e.g. sipping a drink at a bar, looking over a river during sunset) to the extreme (e.g. martial art fighting on a beach, swinging an axe at a car windshield while wearing a bloody apron).

Here’s a selection of photographs from the project that’ll give you an idea of what Wookiees do when they’re not zipping around the universe in spaceships or hanging out on Kashyyyk:

You can find the entire set of these photographs over on the project’s website, Neon Werewolf. To find some photographs by Miyamoto that don’t contain fur and fangs, check out his personal photography website, which includes this project and more.

    I like it as long as no one tries to make up some artsy mumbo jumbo explaining how it describes the juxtoposition of contemporary american life or some crap. ;)

    Agreeing with PP…I don’t like the ones where you can see skin….even the one with skinny jeans is disturbing…Wookies are hairy all over!
