Life after people: Abandoned Star Wars film sets

Italian photographer Rä di Martino took these amazing pictures of abandoned Star Wars film sets in Tunisia. Using Google Earth, she effectively tracked down decades-old locations such as Luke Skywalker’s Tatooine dome home, the Lars Homestead, for a number of photographic projects. As she observed on her website, “Some of it have now become ruins, almost as some sort strange archeological sites. The particular hot and dry climate has helped maintain intact many parts of the sets, or buried under the sand just sections of it.”
