Edward Wadsworth painting of dazzle ships 1919

Dazzle camouflage was a paint scheme used on ships extensively during World War I and to a lesser extent in World War II. It consisted of a complex pattern of geometric shapes in contrasting colours, interrupting and intersecting each other.
“Dazzle did not conceal the ship but made it difficult for the enemy to estimate its type, size, speed and heading. The idea was to disrupt the visual rangefinders used for naval artillery. Its purpose was confusion rather than concealment.” (wikipedia)

Layered Photos - Low Relief Bas Relief Photography

The composition in the photographs uses the contrast between one colour element and the monochrome of the rest of the image to emphasise the element in colour.
Imagine if that single element was built up on a higher layer or layers. Either in colour or monochrome so the contrast was between flat and raised.

 During 1950s - 1970s relief sections were created to make building frontages look more exciting. This was created by William Mitchell in 1972 for a building in Sheffield
These are examples of Low Relief carving first one stone second one wood where the surface is carved away to raise certain elements higher and create a sense of three dimensions
