20 'Stormtrooper portraits' by photographer Kristina Alexanderson

Back at the start of 2011, photographer Kristina Alexanderson made a challenge to herself: take a picture every day of Star Wars stormtroopers new and old in a variety of situations. She's kept up with it, and even 11 months out she hasn't run out of clever and unique ideas.

Even more interesting is the fact that, for only using action figures and tiny props, her "CClone 365-2011" photography collection — which is up to 305 days including 345 photos — has an odd humanizing effect on the Galactic Empire's iconic soldiers. (We're guessing it has something to do with Alexanderson cleverly recruiting a Lego figurine to act as a child Stormtrooper.)

Below are 20 of our favorites from Alexanderson's prolific project.

You can keep up with Kristina Alexanderson's collection on her Flickr, Twitter and Facebook.
