I have been following Ben Heine on flickr ever since I first saw his amazing Pencil Vs Camera series back in 2010. He is an outstanding photographer, and we are more than happy to share some of his new works along with the ones we’ve missed earlier.
Belgian painter Ben Heine has been taking photos and drawing almost since he was 10 years old. This “Pencil Vs Camera” series is nothing but the result of several years of graphic exploration and a logic consequence of his artistic evolution, says Ben. But the real idea came while he was watching television and writing a letter at the same time.
Reading my letter before putting it in the envelope, I saw in transparency the television behind the paper. I then realized it would be great to make something similar in a single image showing 2 different actions. I went outside and Drew “Pencil Vs Camera 1″ which is very simple and shows 2 chairs with a small table. About ¼ of the scene is represented on the paper, the other ¾ happens on the photo.
