Italian Photographer Uses Infrared Photography to Emphasize the Beauty in the World

Italian photographer and art director Paolo Pettigiani uses a unique tool in his photography work. Combining elements of graphic design with photography, he uses a special filter in front of his camera lens to isolate the invisible light spectrum, resulting in these amazing photos.

“Infrared photography is his specialty, the perfect opportunity to define a new point of view on his subjects,” reads Pettigiani’s website.

He adds, “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.”
