Liu Bolin is a human chameleon.  Spending “up to 10 hours at a time,” he literally paints himself and stands in the scene (avert eyes to front “Right” tire) of his photographs. There is no trick photography or photo shopping here, just one man’s uncanny eye for detail.  I bet he does some decent face painting at parties.
