    This reminds me of my early teen years obsessions with military costumes.

    One of the main reasons I think many of us come here is the diversity of content that Scott shares. Just as you never know what’s gonna come round the corner when out shooting on the street, you never know what to expect from The Sartorialist. And for this, we love him.

    Oh dear, I don’t like this at all… Fashion toying with war never works for me. Plus performance art is about 100 years old now, so not profound at all in its own right. Maybe it was better in context.

      the tinkering with war especially as it is often referred to as, “the theater of war” makes the performance of this is a curious issue – very much like sticking a finger in the eye of sorts. that said my gut response is specific to issues of PTSD and Vietnam War. My academic response is: I need ALOT more information…

    I wonder how this artist would define camo? And I would be curious to know how he became enamoured of the design. Nice mood shot.

    Valentino ? I’m so used to his refined, beautiful collections, maybe he is reflecting the hard times we live in.
    Anyway, it’s unexpected and interesting.

    The military should hire this man.

    Wait, who is he? Is he the one that paints himself and camouflages with the background?

    I like it when art meets fashion, so this is interesting…

    Pas amusant here in the USA where school shootings are too real for satire.

    Interesting. Very un-Valentino. I’ll have to ponder on it for awhile…

    While it’s sort of hard to get an idea of his work from this photo (though I am super curious to know what he was doing with Valentino!), Liu Bolin’s work is truly amazing. I put together a little collection of his work actually:

    check it out and you can see what camouflage really means! Genius.

    Beautiful photo! Even though it’s different, it’s so Valentino!

    Actually, it seems a bit sloppy to me.

    Great image.

    You can feel like that in New York, without the use of paint.

    There’s a female artist who does similar work – paints her subjects and then puts them in public places like on a subway to freak people out as moving oil paintings.

    You know, I see emotion in your shots, And that is what makes me fall in love in every shot you take.

    Douglas Pearce appeared on stage dressed like this so-called artist for thirty years. I don’t understand how this stuff that doesn’t even have the charm of novelty, can still enjoy.
