    The invisible man: Liu Bolin's camouflage artwork

    "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 donít 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. Itís about not fitting into modern society. Despite problems with Chinese authorities, Liuís works are appreciated at an international level.

    Well, at least it's creative and different...

    I agree creative and off the wall different. So who is actually behind the camera while he poses?

    Ignore that man behind the camera. Remember Warhol's study was called the Factory....
