"Ben Heine est un artiste installé en Belgique qui aime défier la nature et la caméra. En s’appuyant sur des paysages, des passants ou des tranches de vie qu’il rencontre, il redessine les contours et y ajoute sa part d’imaginaire. Toujours pris en photo tenus par sa main, ses croquis sont la seconde lecture de la vie."

Moon Wine

Moon Wine | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

The Moon
There is such solitude in that gold.
The moon of these nights is not the moon
The first Adam saw. Long centuries
Of human vigil have filled her with
An old lament. See. She is your mirror.
Jorge Luis Borges

A Pinterest board collection of moon pictures : some are really dazzling.
