Artist Laurent La Gamba uses cars to create amazing camouflage art
An artist managed to make his friends and family ‘disappear’ – by blending them in with their surroundings using paint.
An artist managed to make his friends and family ‘disappear’ – by blending them in with their surroundings using paint. Laurent La Gamba’s camouflage means his models appear to be hovering over different parked cars. La Gamba, who used three BMWs and two Porsches for his work, shot each photo in the Pyrenees, southern France, where he has a studio.
La Gamba has described his photos as “procryptic”, a word that normally defines the protective coloring in insects used to camouflage against enemies. “I was also looking for a term that could translate the French word ‘homochromie’ which comprises this idea of ‘chromatic merging’,” says the artist. “Then, I came to this idea of defining my art as ‘procryptic’.”
