The Man Who Can’t Be Photographed
Status: Has to be a hoax
A Chinese paper, the Dahe Daily, reports on a curious incident
involving a man who can't be photographed. Ye Xiangting went to the local police station to get his photo taken for an ID card. This is what happened:
He sat in front of the camera, but no image of him would show up in the photo. The staff checked the camera very carefully, but found no problems. He retook photos of Ye Xiangting, but no photos of Ye Xiangting was found on the computer images.
But wait, it gets weirder:
They took images of Ye Xiangting with other people. They were stunned when the other people showed up in the computer images, but not Ye. Ye Xiangting seemed to have "disappeared" from the photos. In the end, the staff had to give up.
Personally, I have a different problem with ID cameras. They always seem to catch me with a stupid expression on my face. It's uncanny.
