Spanish Photographer Jorge Pérez Higuera’s hilarious series ‘The Other Side‘ came about as a result of his boredom at seeing his friends in his pictures (source: Buzzfeed). He chose therefore to shoot one of the most iconic figures of the late twentieth century, Storm Troopers.
The humanisation of his subjects is a fantastic juxtaposition as to how they normally are represented, as protectors and ground force of the Galactic Empire; faceless, brutal and loyal. Pérez Higuera has flipped the common association and civilised them shooting them in a variety of blissfully domestic situations including waiting causally at the laundrette, playing video games and enjoying cocktails in a jacuzzi.
