Camera vs Pencil

Our imagination is always more powerful than the reality that our eyes are able to see and the tool to make it a real is just a pencil and piece of paper, they can make a simple image taken with a camera, impressive. Though the camera freezes moments, the pencil can make it better.

Imagine photographs from your DSLR/camera being super-imposed with your favourite fantasy characters. That happens to be the essence of this project. Inspired by the artworks of Ben Heine, this project tries to captures ideas with the help of popular campus fandoms and structures.

The Leap of Faith

They lead, each Brother plummeting from the tower and landing safely below in a bale of hay. They are like eagles. Truly free. I do not hesitate. The fall feels like a flight. Exhilarating!

The Leap of Faith was an acrobatic freerunning maneuver in which the person performing it dived off of a high structure and landed, unharmed, into a cushioning material. The move was integral for the members of the Assassin Order and served as a requirement for their initiation for many years, though the practice fell out of use in modern times.

This photograph imagines Ezio, the protagonist of the Assassin's Creed legacy taking a LOF from the clock tower of BITS Pilani.


You thought we could be decent men in an indecent time. But you were wrong. The world is cruel, and the only morality in a cruel world is chance.

— Two-Face

Behold, the once 'White Knight of Gotham'. Harvey Dent was Gotham City's amiable and courteous district attorney and one of Batman's strongest allies until Sal "Boss" Maroni threw acid in his face, hideously scarring him. It also fractured his mental state, causing him to become Two-Face, a schizoid criminal mastermind obsessed with duality and the number two.

What better way to showcase an antagonist obsession with a project that thrives on duality.
