CAPTURING THE INVISIBLE LIGHT
WHY INFRARED ?
I like the idea of taking a picture of something that is not exactly what I see with my eyes; I like the fact that once you've taken the shot you only are at the beginning of a process and that each time it will be slightly different;
I enjoy the experimental part of the work involved in each and every step of the workflow.
I am fascinated by the idea that what I show in my pictures is technically invisible to the naked eye.
With DIY modified digital cameras I explore beyond the limits of human vision, in that part of the light spectrum where color becomes a meaningless notion, and luminosity is way different from what we normally perceive.
Different shooting and postprocessing techniques bring
to life very different results: there is no straightforward path
to follow, and most of the time there is a big part
of experimental work.
