Which one do you think is the predator? Ok, to be honest, this is somehow a small parody of "capitalism".

I have been willing to do something like this since some time… Everything is connected in this image (the smallest fish at the top is asking for help, see detail below). I took the photo near Sousse in Tunisia not too long ago, I also made the drawing. If you wish, you can view some details, the work in progress and other Pencil Vs Camera pictures at this link.

>>> Review from THE SUN for this picture: "Eye-catching ... fisherman snares shark" (The Sun, Dec. 2011)

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Reeling in a whopper: A fisherman appears to catch an unusual trawl in this perspective-bending picture taken in Tunisia as part of the Pencil Vs Camera series by Belgian visual artist Ben Heine" (Matt Blake, The Daily Mail, July 2012).

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