Photographer imagines the daily life of Darth Vader and it’s not what you expected

You know how it is. You're hanging on your Death Star blowing up planets and having lightsaber bants and you feel a bit peckish but... would you bloody believe it, your fridge is empty. Time to head to the Death Star Market.

Okay, it's not quite how we imagined the life of Darth Vader would be - but it is how Polish photographer Pawel Kadysz pictured things.

Taking everybody's favourite Sith overlord and putting him in a series of mundane-yet-charming situations, his collection of images, the aptly titled: Daily Life of Darth Vader sees the force-choking master doing everything from groceries to absent mindedly sitting on logs.

Speaking to Mashable Kadysz said: 

"We never think of movie characters like they were regular people. And they are. With different life goals, obviously, but they’re just people. Hannibal Lecter had to shower. John Doe from Se7en probably had to do the dishes. And Darth Vader has to do groceries."

The photo series has been going since October and Kadysz intends to continue it for the next year, sharing one photo for day. Check them out on his TookAPic page.
