Photographer Joseph Ford and “camouflage” knitting professional Nina Dodd have dedicated more hours than is reasonable to creating bespoke jumpers (for humans, animals, and even bananas) that blend seamlessly into their surroundings – from bus seats to bushes, carpets to coastlines.


“I love the challenge of finding graphic locations, picking models who will fit well into them and then working with Nina’s knitting skills to blend them as seamlessly as possible,” Ford told The Independent. Each of these pictures has taken me several days or weeks to research and plan, and Nina has spent weeks and sometimes months knitting for each one.

You can now enjoy this fun series in a new book by indie publisher favorite, Hoxton Mini Press. Containing images featuring 25 knitted items, behind the scenes photos and stories, there’s even an introduction by acclaimed writer and gallerist Laura Noble. One to add to the Christmas gift wish list, dare we mention it?
