In Brief

Joseph Ford and Nina Dodd created a series of photographs in which subjects wear hand-knit sweaters that help them blend into the background

Sometimes the best combinations are also the weirdest. A collaboration between knitter Nina Dodd (also known as The Duke of Woollington) and British photographer Joseph Ford brings together knitting and street photography. For Knitted Camouflage, Dodd created sweaters that line up perfectly with their surroundings—including street art, racetracks and bus seats—to create a seamless connection between the person and their background. Each location was chosen before the knit, and the models in each picture are regular people the pair asked to pose.

“Whether it be with changing scales or with blending objects together, I’m always looking for new ways to create this sort of illusion,” Ford told Mother Nature Network“and sometimes inspiration will come by chance, seeing one object and mistaking it for another, and then figuring out a way to turn my mistake into an image that will inspire other people.”
