"35-year-old Liu Bolin, from Shandong, China, manages to camouflage himself in any surroundings, no matter how difficult they might be.

Liu works on a single photo for up to 10 hours at a time, to make sure he gets it just right, but he achieves the right effect: sometimes passers-by don’t even realize he is there until he moves.

The talented Liu Bolin says his art is a protest against the actions of the Government, who shut down his art studio in 2005 and persecutes artists. It’s about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liu’s works are appreciated at an international level."

I don't know how he accounts for the changes in lighting while he's working... Amazing.

Wow! Thats incredible! I have never seen anything like this ever before. That man definately has some talent because that would be one of the hardest things ever to do. I think the best one was the army soldiers.

did anybody ever see that movie (years ago) where the stalker was doing the exact same thing? I dont remember the name of the movie. At the end, a cop figured out
what was going on, busted into this girls apt. and started shooting at a brick wall,
and the dude just fell out of it?

cool pics either way, thanks!

Thing is, though, that he's not just some attention whore after fame. He's seeking fame to get his message out.

The one with the police officer is incredible. :applause:
