Eerie Abandoned Stars Wars Set

Located in Tunisia the North Africa was where Lucas shot most of his Star Wars scenes, the desolate and dramatic landscape provided the ideal setting for bringing imagination to life.
Visual artist and filmmaker Rä di Martino recently saw the abandoned sets — some of which have stood the test of time better than others — firsthand.
Her eerie, beautiful photos are remarkable both for their nostalgic value and their subject matter, giving those who see them a window into a surreal world.



1. If Lucas was looking to establish Tatooine as a stark place, it's easy to see why he chose Tunisia to build a set.

2. Some of what's left from the Star Wars days is virtually unrecognizable, however.

3. The Lars homestead ain't what it used to be.

4. This photo, according to di Martino, shows a Tunisian beggar sitting among the ruins.

5. di Martino's Star Wars photos are part of her research for a project on abandoned film sets in North Africa.

Will be a bit of a mind fuck to the archaeologists who dig this up in 1000 years...

Amazing that they just left it and walked away.
