Infrared NYC | Paolo Pettigiani | New York (USA) | By Lee Fleming

Taken in May 2016, the Infrared NYC is a photography series by Italian grapic designer and photographer Paolo Pettigiani which caught the IDMCo team's attention for all the right reasons. Torino-based Pettigiani offers a refreshing perspective on New York through his series of fine art prints which capture iconic views including the Big Apple as seen from Central Park. The Infrared NYC series uses infrared digital photography to capture only the light that we can't see resulting in pink-hued portraits of places that are familiar yet look yet fantastical. Pettigiani explains the process of capturing the Infrared NYC photography on his Behance:

Plants that have chlorophyll, such as grass, leaves and trees, strongly reflect this invisible infrared light. The Chlorophyll is reflected by plant for the 20% on the green, visible to the human eyes, the other 80% is reflected on the infrared spectrum that we can’t see. With the infrared digital photography, using a special filter in front fo the lens, I have blocked the visible light capturing only the invisible. Other elements as sphalt, bricks, water and other surfaces do not reflect the infrared light so the keep the same colors.

About two years ago I started working with infrared photography, shooting landscapes near Turin, my hometown. My first experimental series was taken in winter time and was focused on the contrast between the snow and the color of nature. Talking about infrared, this is the first real project as a mean of artistic expression. 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.

Travel Photography: Reuben Wu | Yucatán (MEX) | By Michael Gannon

I’ve been a big fan of Liverpool-born photographer, film-maker and music producer Reuben Wu for quite some time. A man of many talents, Reuben is a co-founder of the successful electronic band Ladytron but nowadays spends his time traveling to distant places to capture the remoteness and dynamism of the area. Describing his photography in his own words;

"In my visual work, I am driven not just by the urge to create imagery, but by a desire to explore new places as if they were unknown territory, constantly open to serendipity and with an eye for the unnoticed and the hidden. Photographs, like music, can create an echo of a time and a place. To me, my images are more than pictures. They are fragments of memory and imagination."

The photographs featured in this week's update are taken around Yucatán, Mexico, using his Sony A7Rll, DJI Phantom 4 Pro and an iPhone 7 Plus. Talking to Reuben he explains how his approach is “always prepare as much as possible and explore new insights”. We are excited to hear where his next trip will take him, he tells me “possibly Oregon or the Northwest territories”, watch this space.
