Liu Bolin

Liu Bolin, Fading Out Liu Bolin paints his body, or that of his subjects, into an illusion of invisibility for his photographs of his native China. This could have ended up being a pretty shallow artifice, but I like the way he puts it to use to create a sense of the invisibility of the individual in contemporary China (here), the complex relationship with the Chinese state (here and here for a couple of examples) and its slavish devotion to incessant economic development.
