From ew, 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.”
