Simon Menner was struck with a novel idea back in 2010. He got in touch with the army of Germany as he needed some help. He wanted to click photos where he was blended well with the nature and could not be spotted easily. He came up with a series of creation known as Camouflage, in which you would not be able to recognize that a person is standing in the image. The photos were shot in German Alps and North Germany, where the camouflage was done by the elite army. Looking at the images will help you understand how difficult it is to view people standing right in front of us.
Do you see him here?
Look between the stones.
Look at how trees and bushes deceive you.
Behind the bushes.
This did not come easy.
You will not understand where to focus.
Anything strange here?
Last one: Can you spot him?
Ready for the answers?
There he is, underneath this birch tree.
Spot him on the left?
Bet you can see him now.
This one was tough, but there he is.
It’s difficult to spot, but he’s on the middle left, right next to the rock face.
Did you spot him here? He’s under bush to the left of the tree trunk.
This was the easiest one, and it was still pretty difficult.
Yup, that’s him: The tiny dark spot in the middle of the field.
There he is, under all those dead branches. This was way too difficult.
