Ben Heine: pencil vs. camera
may 25, 2011 ben heine: pencil vs. camera ‘pencil vs. camera’ by ben heine image © ben heine ‘pencil vs. camera’ by ivory coast-born brussels-based photographer ben heine is a series of images that inject hand-drawn pictures within real-life settings to create a composite effect that is often surreal and highly narrative. manipulating the backdrop to host added elements such as real-life tetris blocks, floating speech bubbles, and an alcoholic panda, the photographs are an exercise in manual photoshop, always including heine’s hand which holds up the sketched piece of paper in the foreground. alarmingly accurate and crisply focused, the series puts great care in the alignment and perspective required to successfully pull off the optical illusion. heine creates seemingly effortless snapshots that are highly imaginative and contextual. image © ben heine via mymodernmet erika kim I designboom
