Belgian artist Ben Heine blends photography and pencil sketches to create imaginary scenes. He explains: “I find a location, do a drawing, then take a photo to combine with the drawing. “Pencil Vs Camera” mixes drawing and photography, imagination and reality.
It’s a new visual concept invented, initiated and popularized by Ben Heine in 2010. It’s full of magic, illusion, poetry and surrealism.
