Фотограф Джозеф Форд и вязальщица Нина Додд еще несколько лет назад объединились и создали забавный проект под названием «Вязаный камуфляж». Форд выбирает место съемки и модель, а Додд вяжет свитера, соответствующие окружающей обстановке, повторяя не только цвета, но и узоры с линиями.

I spotted this location in Brighton a while back. I loved the rich palette of greens and blues, the dilapidated door and the ragged grey mop against the wall. It seemed the perfect place to photograph Fimber Bravo, the renowned steel pan player. I’d come across his captivating music a few years ago and wanted to work with him for a while. Nina, knitter extraordinaire, loves a challenge and spent weeks working on this jumper. Time well spent. Thanks to #fimberbravo for modelling, @dukeofwoollington as always, @infinityfoodsbrighton for allowing us to take over your loading bay and @lilli.bpayne for your help on the shoot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fimberbravo #knittedcamouflage #infinityfoods #brighton #brightonlife #knittersofinstagram #camouflage #musician #portrait #steelpan #dreadlocks #leaves #green #chateauoart

Here’s the latest knitting picture. This time we decided to up the ante and photograph animals, as if matching knitting to real life wasn’t already complicated enough. Nina did a rather intricate cable knit pattern this time. The original plan was for me to film Buddy the rat running across the carpet in front of the waiting cat. However Buddy didn’t want to play ball. He was quite happy putting on his knitted coat but as soon as we put him down on the rug, the friction between the wool and the carpet meant that he simply walked out of the sweater and scampered away. The second time we tried this he turned and gave me a quick glance before running off. Bingo. In the end we gave him a mini Babybel and he sat there happily munching away while we filmed him. Just to reassure anyone who’s worried about how this scene played out with the rat and cat, we photographed them separately. The cat could obviously smell that there had been a rat and kept looking around suspiciously which worked perfectly for the picture. Thanks as ever to @ninadoddknits @noodle_bear91 Stef for the loan of your house and cats and of course to Buddy the rat. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #knittedcamouflage #rat #ratsofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #josephford #ninadodd #hideandseek #rodents #blendingin #pink #babybel #saycheese #cableknit #animals #cuteanimals #hunting

For the latest shot in the series, @ninadoddknits modelled the knitwear herself. When I scouted out the location I was thrown out by security guards very quickly — a bloke with a medium format digital back was obviously a big threat to public safety in this particular shopping centre. When Nina had finished her knitting magic, we went back and took the pictures as surreptitiously as you can when wielding a large camera. Managed to get the photos done pretty quickly, and beat a hasty retreat when we saw security converging on us. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #escalator #legwarmers #80s #silver #lines #camouflage #knittedcamouflage #knitting #knittersofinstagram #shoppingcentre #blendingin #legs #stairs #nofilter

Stanmer Park, 2019. This was one of those ideas that seem great to start with and then take over your life. A year before shooting it I saw a cherry tree in blossom and thought ‘That would make a great knitting picture’. Every time I’ve asked @ninadoddknits to knit anything approaching camouflage she’s groaned — the random patterns make it very complicated to knit. She almost refused this concept but we settled on a child’s sleeveless dress to minimise the amount of needle time required. Even so it almost finished her off. At one point she had 24 balls of yarn on the go. Once her work was finished I waited anxiously for the cherries to start blooming. I’d found what seemed to be the perfect tree, with a backdrop of other trees, but while all the other local cherries were overloaded with blossom, these ones were bare. I visited them every 3 or 4 days for a month and finally, as I was about to go on holiday, they started flowering. It was a lovely shoot, ably assisted by my model’s siblings and friends, all jealous of the dress and desperate for a go on the swing I’d put up. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #invisiblejumpers #knittedcamouflage #cherryblossom #spring #child #swing #tree #pink #blossom #hanami #sakura #childhood #carefree #brighton #stanmerpark #nature
