DAN WINTERS: STAR WARS, PRESENTED BY WIRED: AN EXCLUSIVE PHOTO EXHIBIT ON DISPLAY THIS MONTH AT THE CONDE NAST GALLERY AT 1 WORLD TRADE CENTER
In honor of Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in theaters later this month, WIRED is hosting a private Star Wars photo exhibition, featuring the work of award-winning photographer Dan Winters. WIRED editor in chief Scott Dadich, head of design Billy Sorrentino, and photo director Anna Alexander curated the gallery, which is running through January 8, 2016 at The Condé Nast Gallery at One World Trade Center.
WIRED chief photographer Dan Winters has photographed some of the most memorable Star Wars props and miniatures from the Lucasfilm archive, located on the grounds of the Skywalker Ranch in California. “For me, these photographs document a beginning of an end, as digital effects began to take over and the miniature has become all but extinct,” says Winters.

Originating from a series shot for WIRED’s June 2015 issue—celebrating forty years George Lucas’s special effects studio: Industrial Light and Music—the photo exhibit pays homage to miniature models used in Star Wars. Computer generated effects have replaced models and set design in contemporary cinema, but miniatures were instrumental in those films to transport viewers to a galaxy far, far away.
