When I was a child, I used to spend hours playing with Lego that my dad once owned. I didn’t have the expensive sets you buy these days, such as the Apollo 13 rocket or the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, but I did have a collection of Lego men, an array of colorful bricks and boards to build things on, and the results were limitless (until I'd used up all the bricks, anyway). 

Lego In Focus takes the creativity of Lego one step further, using Lego characters and Lego objects as the main subjects of photos. It features the work of 50 photographers based all over the world who have found different creative ways of using Lego characters in urban, adventure and wildlife settings. Images also include real-life animals and environments as well as purpose-made backgrounds, and you can tell that the photographers have used a real range of the best cameras to create the images.
