Ben Heine's Pencil vs Camera


Some lovely works from Brussels-based artist/photographer Ben Heine from his Pencil vs Camera series, in which he holds drawings over a landscape, which he then photographs with his other hand to create a piece. The self-taught artist takes inspiration from Magritte and Surrealism, evident in some of his digital photos.

These photos and more are on sale at artprice.com. You can see more of Heine's works at his website and in this Fubiz post.

If you like this art style, create your own art and have it published at the Dear Photograph Tumblr blog. Your brief: take a picture of a picture from the past in the present. Confused? The photos tell all much more clearly.
