While I do not think drawing should imitate photography, the question "where does drawing start and photography ends?" is not easy to answer. Simply copying life is not an option for me. At the same time, the detail that a graphite pencil can produce is very close to my hear. Not the detail itself, the look.
Back to school, here are some plates from Bargue's course, I will post some for people who want to go this way. In themselves very photographic, yet they stand up on their own feet, as drawing art. Very moving! Or maybe it's just me?
