Liu Bolin (TED Talk: The invisible man)  takes the artist statement to another level — by actually disappearing into what he wants to say. Bolin makes some rather bold statements about consumerism, mass culture — even the Chinese government — rather quietly, by creating and wearing suits that allow him to blend seamlessly into the background of his images. Below are 10 previously unpublished pieces from his series “Hiding in the City.” See if you can spot him in each one.
