Mike Stimpson is a photographer and Lego-enthusiast. While most of his catalogue is his own creation, Stimpson has created a series called “Classics in Lego” in which he takes famous photographs and gives them the Lego treatment. Stimpson is able to work around the inherent visual limitations of Lego to create photographs that look surprisingly like the original images. While the originals are serious in nature, there’s a whimsical quality to Stimpson’s recreations, and if you like them enough, you can pick up prints here. For more of Stimpson’s work, check out his website.

Check out some more photos after the break.
