Something in Common by BenHeine Something in Common by BenHeine
Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter || www.benheine.com
____________________________________________________

Another Danboard, I used a 200 mm lens. It's the same drawing and same small piece of paper than PvsC 38 (below), but it's another photo. I placed it in a different environment.

I titled it "Something in Common" because in French "leaf" and "sheet" are both named "feuille"... I also wanted to suggest an opposition between technology (the tiny robot) and nature (the leaf). Nature is everywhere, the robot is a fictive representation. Magritte might have said: "this is not a robot", it's only an image of it... =)

Thanks for your feedbacks.

(The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10)

Ben's Imaginary Friend

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Wake up
And you will see
My imaginary friend
sleeping next to me
Made of paper
And of ink
knows every
Single little thought
that I think
Out the door
A brand new day
Imaginary friend
come out and play
Winter, Spring, Summer Fall
Imaginary friend
Drives me up the wall
Little square head
Don't you know
Look both ways at the cross walk
Before you go
Yellow Red and Green
Imaginary friend
Crosses and makes a scene
Stop little imaginary friend
Take my hand
I can't let you go
Across freeway land
You'll get hurt
And then I'll cry
Imaginary friend
Please don't die
Because we've been together
Since I was small
When I glued you with paste
To the wall
And then the dog
dragged you Away
To the backyard
Because he wanted to play
He dug a hole
And threw you in
Scream and shout
"Let me out!"
Imaginary friend
I ran to see
What the fuss was
And I then I knew I'd be
Because an imaginary friend
May be made of paper
And of ink
And Smiles
Of yesterdays
In the land of
My Imaginary friend

The little robot reminds me of an advert I've been seeing on youtube for the NHS.

such a lovely picture, i love the colour of the leaf against the background, really stands out, and the little robot is just so cute, he is making a big impression, so small, yet rather powerful in this image, him and the leaf are just like :O <3 xD
adorable <3

Its nice but i think you should draw the background near danboard like you do on the other drawings (pencil vs camera)
its a nice work anyway!

thanks. I really wanted to focus only on the Danboard. the paper in this case is much smaller than the other PvsC... So I couldn't add too many details...

Funny fact here with this title, in french "leaf" and "sheet" both are named "feuille"...

Man I am in love with everything about this photo. I love how the leaf is the only color in the picture. I really like how the aperture is wide open for the shot. And more than anything I love the robot, to me it's like he is gazing at the leaf in wonder. It's such a simple drawing but it says so much. It seems like there is so much curiousity on his face. I love your creativity. Is there a way I could buy a large print of this?

ooh, thanks so much. It's the technology vs the nature and still it's only a drawing, the image of a robot, not the robot itself... If you're willing to get a print of this, please contact my friend and commercial agent: rami@theartistery.com He will give you detailed information... thank you
