This type of infrared photography is implemented with a specially converted camera and special filter to create a look that is strongly reminiscent of Kodak's Aerochrome analog film. Due to their chemical composition, plants reflect wavelengths in the infrared range that are invisible to humans and are rendered red due to a filter. Non-organic objects, such as buildings, retain their natural colors.
“As an action sports photographer, it is my goal to find creative ways to showcase athletes. Through the intense red color, I want to draw attention to the importance of balancing nature and urban spaces,” explains the Austrian photographer. “The first infrared images I stumbled across were by Richard Mosse in 2018. I was fascinated by his idea and the creative implementation, but I didn't really understand the technical background. When the COVID pandemic started and I was trapped in my apartment in Innsbruck for weeks, I became more involved with the topic of black and white infrared photography and learned the technical background to make extraordinary landscape photography.”
