Pencil Vs Camera. Juxtaposing imagination with reality.
Ben Heine Creates a stunning mixture of Photography and art in which he juxtaposed imagination with reality . This innovative Visual concept initiated by him in 2010, integrates hand drawn sketches in front of a real background.
The idea behind using only black and white sketches over color photographs was to enhance the contrast behind the two mediums . His art focuses on Animals. people, art, portraits,games nature architecture ,Love, Freedom, After Life and Friendship. As Ben says
“I just make art for people. I want them to dream and forget their daily troubles. I used to write poems many years ago, I want to convey a poetic and philosophical meaning into my pictures, each new creation should tell a story and generate an intense emotion, like a poem, like a melody”.
