The history of photography, in Legos

legoized photo of Death of a loyalist soldier by Robert Capa

If there is a God of Art, she must surely smile down upon the innocent fanatics who recreate great works of art entirely out of Legos. Case in point...the photographic recreations of Marcos Vilarino.

Vilarino has restaged some of the most famous works from the history of photography, entirely in Lego blocks. The example above is, of course, the Lego version of Robert Capa's famous photograph of a soldier dying during the Spanish Civil War. Compare Vilarino's Lego version with Capa's original.
