Vanishing Act

The Artistry of Animal Camouflage

Photographs by Art Wolfe, text by Barbara Sleeper



SKU: Books:BO91 Category:


Legendary wildlife photographer Art Wolfe turns to one of nature’s most fundamental survival techniques: the vanishing act. His portraits show animals and insects disappearing into their surroundings, using deceptions, disguises, lures, and decoys to confuse the eye of both predator and prey.

Spotting each cryptic animal amid Wolfe’s clever compositions is both a fun and an informative challenge.

At a time when many species are performing permanent vanishing acts due to habitat loss and human encroachment, this book showcases the beauty and evolutionary extremes of animal behavior and artfully illustrates the tenacious will to stay alive in an eat-or-be-eaten world.
