Hidden Things – Camouflage Photography by Aaron Hegert
Aaron Hegert delights in capturing images of hidden things, especially when he’s the one who hid them in the first place. His series “Foxhole” documents his attempts at catching “a glimpse of something between the seen and unseen”. According to Aaron, photography, like camouflage, is the visual product of a spatial practice: both require a presence and awareness in the material environment, and both entail a perceived transmutation of that environment. His photographs borrow criteria from various tactics of camouflage in both the natural and synthetic world. Thus the ‘how’ of disappearance remains the same but the ‘why’ remains mysterious.
