'A Spring in New York' is a series of Fred Labain camouflage posters that feature images of the busy city, which are able to blend into the surroundings.

The posters are cropped images of New York landscape pictures. They are printed on large-scale photo paper and then taken back to the scene of the crime where they are displayed on stands or held up to become a part of the original landscape. The Fred Labain camouflage posters become a picture within a picture, making them an intriguing and mind-boggling view. They would be able to blend seamlessly with the surrounding background if it wasn't for the visibility of hands holding them up or the strange overlapping qualities that give them away.
