Camouflage suit for October

Robert Heinecken                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Camouflage suit for October, 1966                                               

Gelatin silver (Kodalith) transparency over magazine paper collage.

 

This image reminded me of when Sturken and Cartwright said that the camera has the role of capturing the real world but at the same time can evoke an emotion, meaning that it could appear both magical and truthful.  When I saw it I also thought of the fact that people want to be able to see beyond the human eye. I believe that “Camouflage suit for October” of Robert Heinecken represent in an intuitive way both of these ideas. Here you can see how he combines a magazine images collage and gelatin silver transparency to create an eye catching image. The technique used and the images chosen makes the photo look magical and truthful, give the viewer a perspective beyond his natural sight.
