NEW: Prints now available!

Featuring my friend Davide Gentile. He is an Italian film director.
This is a "Pencil Vs Camera" image I made near Braives' church.
He is holding a camera with a huge lens (it's not a futuristic gun,
lol). If you wish, you can view a detail HERE.

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX11,
provided by Samsung Electronics. Co., Ltd.

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Great apes:
A man is seen turning a camera on human's earliest ancestors, in
this humorous take on the theory of evolution"
(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 original music).

Evolution

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Evolution
Revolution
Faith
Science
Uptight
Upright
Who's right?
Who do we think we are?
Created by
Science or
God?
Are we allowed to know?
In the shadows
Mankind is blessed
Or lined up with the beasts?
Are we above the rest
Science or religion
Puts faith to the test.

This work is one of the acts that always come back to it
Everything is beautiful here, just note I have not concealed You as a drawer, Shadows must be from the front at the feet of men , By direction of the light, but maybe you want to be well Mixing fiction with reality.
Ben You are the most important person for me because I long ago stopped drawing, When I see your artwork, my friend invited me To see what you draw, You prepared me love and passion for drawing.
Mr. Ben

Amazing work mate.I really love the concept you have used here.The evolution of mankind being filmed by a camera man is so thought provoking.It is as if an alien species has landed on earth and with the help of a camera that can see the past and future,is recording mankind to study it. :) :clap:

Ben,

Please tell me if this is one single photograph or if you added the drawing and the hand after you shot the photo. I'm from "Best Photographs" and we are debating whether or not this particular piece is one photograph or a photomanipulation. You've sent me to your interviews before about the descriptions of how you put these together, but at this time I am interested in this one only.

Thanks.
