Pencil Vs Camera

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Pencil Vs Camera
A concept, you say?
What is real
What is art
Fire burns
Paper
Only tears
Tell the story.
Look carefully
Like ashes to
The flame
No Voice
To scream
I am a concept.
I am art.

What a completely unique mixed mediums artwork. I can't even tell you how really creative this idea is. But this one definitely stands out from the others like in in the series in my opinion.

Firstly, I know how hard it is to catch flames in a photograph and still maintain some semblance of a proper exposure, yours is beautifully executed, the drawing of the face is unbelievably funny because of how really traumatized the expression looks. I also like how it's torn out of a sheet of paper.

It reminds me of every woman who has torn her ex boyfriends image out of all her photos and burnt them in effigy. Think how enjoyable their experience would be if the pictures cried and begged for forgiveness lol

one quick constructive comment, (and I know you can't have a whole lot of control over this) but the way the paper folded as it burned seems to cover up the face more then I would like. The drawing is so good I wish I could see that little bit more of it. But that is 100 percent and opinion

overall I can't say enough great things about this very creative idea and well executed photograph. well done.
What do you think?

Wow.

Just a moment too late or too soon, the whole picture would have been ruined!
