What do you do when your youngest child takes a liking to a Darth Vader helmet that’s just a little too big for his frame? You take a picture and then another and then another. That’s what Ashly Stohl did with her son Charlie. At first, she made these pictures without any serious intent, but once they started getting more traction than her other work, she realized there might be something there. These little one-off pictures became something more: her first book Charth Vader. What makes this even more significant is that she created her own imprint with photographer David Carol in order to publish it because she didn’t want to trust these personal photos to some other publisher. They called the fruits of their labor Peanut Press Books with Charth Vader as its first publication.

A selection of Ashly’s images and the episode are below. For more of her work, you can check out her website, and for Peanut Press Books, go here. You can pick up a copy of Charth Vader here.
