Remember Ben Heine, the painter, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist, and photographer? He takes pictures and then uses a pencil drawing to fill in the gaps. This process gives his work uniqueness, and is extremely cool. Now we are not saying that Taylor Jones, who is the founder of Dearphotgraph, stole this idea and instead uses old photographs. The point that we are trying to get across is that, while the ideas are different the concept is the same.
Taylor Jones came up with this new trend by an accident. While looking through old pictures at the kitchen table he came across an old photo. His mother and brother where both sitting the same way as the old photograph portrayed. He took our the photo and held it up, to his surprise the photo matched exactly and thus a new idea was born.
