A talented illustrator and photographer, Ben Heine creates wonderful combination photography and pencil sketches he calls “Pencil Vs Camera“. “Pencil Vs Camera” 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. It’s a new visual concept invented and initiated by Ben Heine in 2010. It’s full of magic, illusion, poetry and surrealism.
