Photographer Mike Stimpson takes a lot of photos of Legos, but it’s not as simple as it sounds; he does it with awesome lighting set-ups and great attention to detail.

Above, his recreation of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s “Behind the Gare Saint Lazare” in Lego, and the original.

Want to see how he does it? Check out his set up shot and explanation here.
