Paolo Pettigiani Uses Infrared Photography To Give Us A Different View Of The World
Italian photographer and art director Paolo Pettigiani combines his two passions – graphic design and photography – in one single image, playing with colors, shapes and contrasts. At first glance, his works look like dreamy images from a fantasy movie but in reality he applies a special filter in front of his lens to block the visible light spectrum and isolate only the invisible one.
His specialty is infrared photography. Infrared photography uses a special film or light sensor that processes wavelengths of infrared lights that are usually not visible. Artist claims that it is a perfect opportunity to define a new point of view on his subjects. He gives us an opportunity to look at the world from his point of view and with different eyes.
To discover a new unseen world.
Explaining his philosophy, he says, “What I like of this kind of photography is to make visible something invisible. My aim is to show something recognizable under a new unexpected and personal point of view.”
