In 2010 an Italian photographer named Ra di Martino ventured into the Tunisian desert in search of the abandoned Star Wars sets. The Tunisian desert location was used in the 1976 movie to film Lars Homestead on Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine.

Since these photos were taken back in 2010 a group of Star Wars fans have raised a fair bit of money to restore the set. You can find out more about this story at NBC News.
