Brighton-based photographer Joseph Ford collaborated with knitwear designer Nina Dodd (aka The Duke of Woollington) to create a photo series of camouflage clothing that captures the wearers seamlessly merging with their surrounding urban environments. Describing his work as “storytelling with a side order of off-beat creativity,” Ford’s clever, trick-of-the-eye photo collection titled Knitted Camouflage shows models wearing Dodd’s colorful, patterned sweaters against matching backgrounds, creating the illusion of disappearing torsos.
In one image, a bearded man is perfectly captured against a row of red, patterned bus seats. In another, a dog in a textured green knit becomes lost next to a leafy shrub. Ford and Dodd also collaborated with French street artist Monsieur Chat, who posed with one of his trademark yellow cats. When stood next to it on top of a ladder, the design of his yellow and black sweater lines up perfectly with the mural.
