Dubbed the Invisible Man, Liu Bolin of Shandong, China has created an art form of camouflage. The 38-year-old artist takes elaborately conceived photographs of himself blending in barely noticeable against his surroundings. Standing motionless for hours as he is painted over, Liu becomes a part of his backdrop, which includes everything from telephone booths to earthquake rubble. Authorities shut down Liu’s art studio in 2005 and since, “Hiding in the City”, as his series is called, is purportedly Liu’s continuing protest against the state’s crackdown on art and free expression. Enjoy these fabulous photographs, and see if you can spot the artist in them.
