Musicians get Lego treatment in epic photo series

Posted on


And we thought Lego peaked.

Lego enthusiast Adly Syairi Ramly took his passion for the plastic figures and turned Legos into famous musicians for a series of photos he shot and edited on his iPhone 5s.

Ramly, who is an assistant vice president for a TV station in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, started collecting Legos in 2011 and that’s when he decided to take it a step beyond. “One day I thought I should try something fun, like Lego-lize the bands I love,” Ramly tells EW. “It helps me relax, wind down.”

His photos show big bands like The Beatles, The Smiths, and — a highlight — *NSYNC in all their No Strings Attached-glory as Legos. The photos became popular once the Internet discovered them, but Ramly doesn’t have any plans to capitalize on his new-found fame. “To be honest, the only plan I had was to have an exhibition here in Kuala Lumpur,” Ramly says. “To sell [the photos], it never came across my mind. Because it’s something I do in my leisure time, it’s something I love doing.”
