Beatiful work! Mundane images come interestingly alive. Plus you get the best of both worlds.
Ben Heine is a Belgian artist, he has an incredibly creative series, Pencil Vs Camera. Heine melds his love and passion for illustration and photography to come up with pieces that stretch our imagination.
“Pencil Vs Camera is all about illusion, dream, poetry, magic and simplicity,” says Heine. “The challenge is to create a 3D-like drawing on a piece of paper; the sketch should be connected with the photographic background but it should also say a little story by itself. I always try to give symbolic meaning to my drawings so that the message goes deeper than the photo alone. The combination of drawing and photography is really a powerful way to express ideas. There are no limits because everything is possible; every single illusion can be created on the paper.”
