    There is no illusion, photo is actually color.

    It's really not.

    If you zoom in, you can see that there's a grid of coloured lines, and the picture beneath them is greyscale monochrome.

    You mean stripes which sometimes cover 100% of the area?

    There are no such stripes. The coloured lines cover a tiny fraction of the area.

    Dude, I actually looked at RGB of pixels, it's far from gray-scale.
    Most of the time it has distinct coloring.

    It's a neat effect. Although some of the lines are sharp and narrow, and others are wide and fuzzy. Make lines wide and fuzzy enough and they eventually merge to be a continuous field of color.

    I'm curious about the logos on the green shirts and white shirts. They appear to be solid color, but are too small to be cross-hatched, unless the artist used extremely small cross-hatched lines on them.

    There is no effect here, Photo is color, not black-white.

    Even the wording above the picture is illusory (and I’m the one that often denies there’s an illusion when some say there is one). It’s a plain white back ground with a large area of black covering it—except there’s areas of the black that is cut out in fancy shapes that are almost like a coat covering perfectly fitted to surround written letters.
