Reminiscent of the work of Chinese artist Liu Bolin (previously posted here), make-up artist Carolyn Roper was commissioned to camouflage women using body paint in order to make them blend into London’s urban scenery. In the top photo you see a woman who was painted to disappear amongst the produce on a vegetable stand at London’s Portobello Market. Below that another woman fades into the background sitting on the rear seat of a city bus. 

This was project was created to promote the third season of Covert Affairs, an American TV series about CIA agents and their espionage missions. The new season of Covert Affairs premiered on September 19, 2012 on the UK channel Really.
