As odd as it may seem to some, there are people who find Star Wars very arousing. Sure the light sabers are phallic and there’s a lot of heavy breathing, but canoodling with a Stormtrooper? “Dreaming of the Dark Side” is a photographic editorial of a young girl – dressed as a Twi’lek– lustfully dreaming about Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper, too.

Recently shot by Marie-Louise Cadosch of Marc & Louis photography (as a tribute to the photographer’s Star Wars-loving sister Kathrin), the editorial stars the beautiful Maura Waller from OPTION Models dreamily cavorting with members of the Dark Side.

About Marc and Louis:

Marc & Louis Photography is a team of photographers who do far more than just conveying the ineffable. They are creators and ambassadors of art which fuels the imagination. Their images are coined by a wide range of influences that still manage to accumulate to form one harmonic overall picture. They tell stories one cannot grasp at just one quick glance. Their images are mystical, dreamful and emotional, almost as if they are drawn by eras, separated by a hundred years, yet they still harbor authenticity and harmony.
Marc & Louis follow a distinctive style that can be found in each and every picture. A style that never bores the eyes of the beholder. Their attention to detail and authentic scenery grants every image an individual ambiance, transforming it into one beautiful piece of art and the story behind it into an epos.
Marc & Louis find the inspiration behind their visual tales in movies and music. They prefer using reality as a setting since natural environments combined with extreme or atypical props allow for a much broader range of possibilities. Marc & Louis images are meticulously prepared works of art which capture moments, emotions, even dreams and coalesce them into one memorable story.
