Italian Photographer Transports Us To A Different Time And Place With His Candy-Colored Infrared Photography


There’s something about photography that can transport you to another time and place, like a memorable song or smell that reminds you of your childhood.

A great photographer can do that – take photos of seemingly everyday things and places and take you to another time and place. And keep you staring at that same photo again and again to see something new.

Italian photographer and art director Paolo Pettigiani is one such photographer. He 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.”
