The kids will connect with Mike Stimpson’s black and white photographs because of the Lego figures, but it’s the grown-ups who will love their reference to classic black and white and color photographs.  Recognize Charles Ebbets’ 1932 photograph of steelworkers having lunch atop a New York skyscraper girder?

Lego Recreation - Cartier-Bresson's "Behind the Gare Saint Lazare"

Here’s Stimpson’s Lego recreation of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s 1932 photograph “Behind the Gare Saint Lazare”.

And Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ goal during the quarter finals of the 1986 World cup between England and Argentina.

Plus, Alfred Eisenstaedt’s 1945 photograph “V.J. Day Times Square”.

Prints to these photographic classics and more by Mike Stimpson are available at Red Bubble.
