PHOTOGRAPHER TRANSFORMS CENTRAL PARK INTO PSYCHEDELIC PARADISE

Paolo Pettigiani, an Italian photographer who has been experimenting with infrared photography for roughly two years, received overwhelming attention for his infrared series on New York City’s Central Park.

“What I like about this kind of photography is making visible something invisible. My aim is to show something recognisable under a new unexpected and personal point of view.”

The park’s lush greenery turned a bright shade of pink in Pettigiani’s images, while NYC’s skies and cityscape were captured in a blueish hue. Compared to the vibrancy of the trees, the buildings behind created a stark contrast due to their stoic nature.

Chlorophyll has the ability to strongly reflect invisible infrared light, making Central Park one of the best spots for infrared photography considering its abundance of healthy vegetation.
