The first time I saw an infrared photograph, it blew my mind. It felt like I was given access to a secret and mysterious world. Infrared cameras captures light that the human eye can’t detect, and gives us the opportunity to explore a hidden world where everything looks different.
Hidden Light is a collection of 14 photographs, all of them captured with an infrared camera. With this project I wanted to explore how the technology of infrared cameras can transform an otherwise boring and uninspiring place into a beautiful, mysterious and ethereal sphere.
The images shows that even the dullest surroundings can be interesting and beautiful. The protagonist of the story, a young girl, takes us along as she navigates the intriguing world of infrared light.
