Pencil Vs Camera - 16

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||



This is a real fire, a real drawing, a real piece of paper, real fingers...

only ashes are left :( I recently took this photo in a Polish forest and

I also made the very rough sketch. This is dedicated to all the people

suffering in the world. Thanks for watching!


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (with a small animation and original music).

Ashes to Ashes


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Ashes to ashes

My own paper heart

A love fire crashes

Each broken love’s dart

My feelings for you

Are the inside of all

Some make me so blue

As they onward call


Like forest of green

From roads endlessly on

My love is between

Some sweet or bygone

A kindle of its fire

We together adhere

Burn of love’s desire

In faraway and near


Oh love my everlasting

A tear that I shed

Like a paper white casting

Of everything we said

The flames of yellow

And red torching light

Drops of blue mellow

For now is the night




Pencil Vs Camera


A poem by Katie Gabrielle


Pencil Vs Camera

A concept, you say?

What is real

What is art

Fire burns


Only tears

Tell the story.

Look carefully

Like ashes to

The flame

No Voice

To scream

I am a concept.

I am art.
