About the Pencil Vs Camera 73
Ben Heine is the master creator of the concept Pencil Vs Camera. It is basically a combination of camera and drawing that features a fusion of reality and imagination. This creative style that has been initiated by him can be described as having a touch of magic, artifice, poetry and surrealism. According to Ben, this is the result of his extensive graphic exploration and a logical significance of his individual progress in art. He typically assimilates an ingenious handmade drawing in front of a realistic setting. Ben has made the illustration either in black and white whereas the photograph is frequently very colorful. This is to intensify the distinction between the two forms.
