Pencil Vs Camera - 56

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||



Street Art in Florence, Italy. I recently took this picture and also made the drawing. Originally, the mother and child were holding grapes. I had several ideas to replace the grapes with something more funny. I chose a camera because I'm thinking about buying a new camera. I also liked the connection between photography, painting and drawing...


Detail and background here below (the painting on the floor is by Madonnari).


The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Illusions: Art, imitating life, imitating art... the artist claims his technique is a "new visual invention" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical composition)
