You know I love bringing you fiber and crafty-related articles, dear readers. I came across this one recently and it gives "blending into your environment" a whole new meaning! My favorite is the man knitting and blending into his seat cushion at the end. Spectacular! Original article found here.
Over the last four years, photographer Joseph Ford has collaborated with friend and knitter Nina Dodd to create a project that blends models into their environments rather than having them stand out. Each subject wears a custom hand-knit sweater by Dodd that transforms their torso, partially camouflaging their body into a highly textured wall, striped running track, or for one pooch—the leaves of dense shrub.
The series, Knitted Camouflage, also features a collaboration with French street artist Monsieur Chat who painted one of his trademark cats on the wall of a derelict factory for the photographer. You can take a peek behind the scenes of Ford’s photographic projects on his Facebook and Instagram.
