Yoda meets Goya: to coincide with the Goya exhibition at The National Gallery in 2015, reproductions of paintings by Goya were put up on hoardings in Trafalgar Square. Here, the photographer managed to capture a 'Living Yoda' human statue in front of a painting of Spanish neo-classical poet Juan Antonio Melendez Valdes. Photo: stevedexteruk
