Where’s Waldo is an iconic figure for my generation. The classic red and white striped sweater-wearing man that likes to play hide-and-seek in children’s books occupied many of my childhood hours. (Yes, my childhood was uneventful. Why do you ask?)
Now, an Ontario-based photographer and designer, Andrew Knapp, is channeling Waldo through his dog in his photo project, ‘Find Momo.’ Momo is a border collie whose favorite game is to hide. One day Andrew threw Momo a stick, and instead of fetching it, Momo hid. As a gift to his nephew and nieces, Andrew began to photograph the hiding Momo and started uploading them online. Momo is now an Instagram sensation, with 270,000+ followers who help “Find Momo” every day.
This is Momo:
He likes to play hide-and-seek. Sometimes he hides really well.
Other times, not so much.
Andrew and Momo have traveled all over the country, hiding and taking photos for the Find Momo blog and Instagram. They have recently published a book of ‘Find Momo’ images which can be found here.
The combination of Andrew’s awesome compositions and Momo’s cuteness not only makes this a fun photo project, but also a game where people tune in daily to find that adorable little black and white dog hiding somewhere on your screen.
Can you spot Momo in the following images?
