These invisible man snapshots show Liu Bolin blending seamlessly into each and every background.

There's no Photoshopping or other visual trickery going on here either. Bolin has covered himself in flawlessly applied body paint in order to blend into whichever background he chooses. Clever photographic angles and shadowless lighting completes the incredible optical effect. Whether he's fading into a magazine stand, a smartphone display, a building lobby or even a street sign, Liu Bolin is a body paint camouflage guru.

The amount of time and effort Bolin put into each shot is commendable, as it is not easy organizing body paint to blend in perfectly with a variety of backgrounds. However, the end result is completely worth it as these pictures show.
