There’s one thing you keep thinking while going through Art Wolfe’s animal camouflage photographs: how on earth did he spot them himself? The amazing “Vanishing Act” project gives you the feeling that there’s no human presence in the photos whatsoever, as the Washington-based artist captures real-life animal camouflage skills. Art, aged 61, started this project back in 1989 and published it in 2005, but still finds things to add to it:

A fine arts and art education graduate has had highly prolific five decades of photography and publishing. Art has worked in hundreds locations on every continent, and has published at least one book every year since 1989. Today, that makes a total of 80! Multiple award-winning photographer says it has always been his goal to support the conservation issues by “focusing on what’s beautiful on the Earth”.
