"IT'S AN ODD THING, BUT ANYONE WHO DISAPPEARS IS SAID TO BE IN SAN FRANCISCO. IT MUST BE A DELIGHTFUL CITY AND POSESSES ALL THE ATTRACTIONS OF THE NEXT WORLD”
(Oscar Wilde)

Exept the childhood memories of playing hide and seek - 
Who hasn't at some point wished for hiding out for a while?

Due to some favorite fashion accessories, 
the Berlin-based photographer Sabrina Theissen 
and some useful advices we found online
we pointed out some possibilties in our EGO ISSUE.

HOW TO HIDE 

(FOUND AT WIKIHOW)

1.

MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT BEING OBSERVED OR BREAKING LINE OF SIGHT


2.
STEP BEHIND YOUR COVER OR INTO THE SHADOWS
(if possible do it silently.)

3.
 KEEP QUIET
 (this is key!)

4.
 IF IT IS POSSIBLE GET UP HIGH OR CROUCH . THE HUMAN MIND INSTINCTIVELY LOOKS LEFT , RIGHT , AND BACK — BUT NOT UP OR DOWN . MAKE SURE YOU’RE NOT AT EYE -LEVEL

5. 
TRY TO COMPRESS YOUR BODY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE . WHOEVER SEES YOU IS LESS

6. 
STAY STILL 
(the human eye detects motion before anything else, even more so at night.)

7.
IF POSSIBLE , COVER YOURSELF WITH YOUR SURROUNDINGS 
(e.g. leaves in a forest, clothes in a laundry room.)

8. 
THERE ’S A MUCH HIGHER CHANCE OF STAYING HIDDEN IF YOU DON ’T MOVE
 (even if they seem to be looking right at you they may not have seen you, so don’t even move your eyes.)

9.
IF YOU AREN ’T HIDDEN BY THE TIME THEY ARE LOOKING , DART TO THE NEAREST PLACE , EVEN IF IT’S OBVIOUS
(e.g. if you are wearing all black clothes in a bedroom, it may still work to get on a bed with pillows, get behind all the pillows, and then curl up to disguise yourself as a pillow.)

10. 
IF YOU ’RE SMALL ENOUGH GO AND HIDE IN SMALL PLACES
 (the person (or people) you’re hiding from would not think to look in such a small area.)
