A Photographer Captures The Beauty of Abandoned Star Wars Sets In Tunisia

star wars set 3 - first

Movie sets can remain long after a production has gone, and that’s the case for the planet of Tatooine. Tunisia was the real life location for the alien planet in Star Wars, and some of the structures of Mos Espa still stand in the harsh desert. Photographer Ra di Martino visited the locations and photographed the remnants of the sets. The pictures are haunting and lovely. I desperately want to visit Tunisia one of these days, and these photos just fuel that desire.
