Want to give your photos a makeover? All you need is pen and paper!
Earlier today, we published “Little Drawings on Film Burned Photos” which feature imaginative photo illustrations by Dilşad Aladağ from Turkey. A similar but slightly more radical technique was employed by Belgian artist Ben Heine on his project “Pencil vs. Camera” and it’s making us wish we were more skilled at sketching.
Initiated in 2010, “Pencil vs. Camera” is Heine’s juxtaposition of photos and drawings to represent an altered reality “full of magic, illusion, poetry and surrealism.” Heine’s hand is always seen interjecting in the frame which represents the relationship between the viewer, the artist, and the artwork. He says he draws black and white imagery and places them on top of color photos to show the difference between truth and fiction. Again, another wonderful analogue project we’d love to see more of!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
