A collaboration between Joseph Ford and Nina Dodd

Camouflage is a concealment method that allows animals, people, military vehicles and other potentially visible elements to visually blend with the surrounding environment so as not to attract attention.The effect is obtained thanks to the use of colours, outlines and patterns that match the background of the object that needs to be concealed, thus deceiving the eyes of the beholder.
The technique is illustrated in this picture by British photographer Joseph Ford who, in collaboration with the skilled tricoteuse Nina Dodd, has created a series of interesting situations for the collection of images Knitted Camouflage in which a “camouflage” pullover – in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment – ends up obtaining exactly the opposite effect of what you would expect: it draws attention instead of concealing. Perhaps it is the beard’s fault.
