The 50 states which together form the United States of America have distinct cultural, geographic or popular identities of their own. Of course, only an American can be proud of something like that! But, surprisingly, it was a Canadian who was struck with the unique idea of using Lego bricks to create a diorama showing all 50 US states in their distinct identity. So, if it is freezing cold in Alaska, it is beach time in Hawaii. If it is Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer in Missouri (setting of the Mark Twain stories), it is an alien chasing a man in New Mexico (Roswell UFO incident). Hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia, the photographer, Jeff Friesen, used his little daughter’s Lego bricks to create these masterpieces as part of a project titled ‘50 States of Lego’.
