Can You Spot The Invisible Animals Hiding In These 23 Photos? Most People Can’t!
Art Wolfe has spent the last 35 years of his career doing something that most of us can only dream of: Traveling the world, documenting the gorgeous wildlife that each part of it has to offer.
According to Wolfe, he has traveled through every continent in pursuit of subjects, particularly for a series of images called "Vanishing Act" that dates back to the eighties. In the photos, Wolfe captures animals hiding in plane sight -- often almost completely invisible to the naked eye.
"Throughout my career as a nature photographer, I have challenged myself to present new perspectives on well-documented subjects," Wolfe said in an interview. "Like most of my projects this collection has been a long time in the making"
