A Hidebehind is a nocturnal creature from American folklore which preys upon humans that wander the woods, and was credited for the disappearances of early colonial loggers when they failed to return to camp. As its name suggests, the Hidebehind is noted for its ability to conceal itself. When an observer attempts to look directly at it, the creature hides again behind an object or the observer, and therefore can’t be directly seen; The Hidebehind uses this ability to stalk human prey without being observed, and to attack without warning.
On June 8, 1968, people lined train tracks along the East Coast of America as Robert F. Kennedy’s funeral procession moved from New York to Arlington National Cemetery. Magnum Photographer Paul Fusco documented the scene from a window of the funeral train.
