[PHOTOS] Naked people with bodies so perfectly painted, they blend right into nature!


PIC FROM FILIPPO LOCO / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED:Painted into a tree using body paints in Dry Forest in Piones, Puerto Rico.) - At first glance youd be forgiven for thinking these were just pictures of pretty landscapes, but take a close look and youll realise all is not as it seems Hidden amongst the pictures are a series of nude models painted to blend so seamlessly into their surroundings its almost impossible to spot them. From a woman disguised as a tree to another as a rock or cactus, the models have been painted by talented artist Filippo Ioco, 47, so they appear completely camouflaged against a series of idyllic landscapes. So far, the artist from Switzerland has created stunning works in locations such as San Juan Island National Historical Park, in Puerto Rico, Cala Rossa in Sicily, Italy, and Point Dume-Zuma Beach, in California, USA.

If you’ve ever heard of “Earth porn,” this isn’t exactly it.

Some photographers snap pictures of pretty landscapes, but Swiss-born Italian artist Filippo Ioco uses nature as a canvas to subtly explore artistic nudity.

His landscapes include nude models painted to resemble their surroundings. Sometimes the people are very well-hidden, while other times they stick out rather obviously.

Why hide naked models among rocks, cliffs and trees? Ioco says he hopes that spotting the nudes will help people better accept the nude human form as art.



“Bodypainting will never save the world, but it’s presence will certainly change the way society around the world views and embraces artistic nudity,” Ioco wrote on his website.

If nature photography isn’t your thing, Ioco has also shot pieces with naked people as cocktails, desserts and wild animals.

Can you spot all all the nudes in Ioco’s images below?
