The 'Dark Holiday' series by photographer Nick Presniakov is a fun look at the Star Wars villain.
The series showcases Darth Vader casually enjoying the beach -- in full regalia, of course. From lounging in his hotel room crushing Budweiser cans as he drinks to surfing on the beach, the cloaked Sith Lord looks to be enjoying his Dark Holiday.
The Dark Holiday collection just proves that sometimes, the most notable villains need some rest and relaxation before they continue taking over the galaxy.
