Photo-Like Black and White Drawings

Yes these really are drawings, have a look in the post to see a sped-up video of the artist at work.
With a background in Product design, artist Alessandro Paglia, has always been fascinated with black and white imagery, whether that was from photographs, or drawings.  He describes his drawing process as: "superimposing a layer of chaotic lines on top of another, until I get the right nuances in even the smallest details".  The first thing he does, is to take many pictures of a image and then chooses the one that has the best lighting, contrast and composition.  Once one is picked, he starts drawing using technical black ink pens, ranging from 0.1 to 0.8 mm, on extra white, 100% cotton, rough grain, weight 640 gsm paper.  Due to intricacy of his drawings, it can take him between 50 and 250 hours to complete on of his images.  I have added some details below, so that you can see what it looks like up close and maybe you can pick-up some tips if you want to try this kind of drawing technique.
