Cecilia Paredes was born in Lima, Peru, and currently lives and works between San Jose, Costa Rica and Philadelphia. Her artistic career began as a painter but her creative concepts evolved, revealing themselves first in three-dimensional objects, then through photography. This works is a series of self portraits where Paredes paints her own body to blend in with the background.

Working with her assistants, Cecilia covers herself with make-up, body paint and clothes to literally vanish into the background. Her works reminds me of the Liu Bolin who is a master at disappearing.

  1. She could put a light on both sides to remove the shadows as they are what reveals her presence in the pics. Unless that's done on purpose... No way to know for sure!
