Seeing Reds

Photograph by Daniel Zvereff

Tombstone Territorial Park in Canada’s Yukon Territory is photographed using Kodak aerochrome infrared film. Originally intended for aerial photography to indicate areas of vegetation in surveys and to find camouflaged military encampments, this infrared-sensitive, false-color reversal film turns plant life a majestic red or purple hue while nonplant life often renders in gray or blue.

Photographer Daniel Zvereff made this image as part of a project documenting the changing landscapes of the Arctic, which was featured recently on our photography blog Proof.

An unusual  photograph using infrared film, and so a wow shot altogether. But it is for me colorwise, a hot pink with small amounts of red dotted around. Great idea for a very different kind of beautiful photograph, that is worth looking at. j.e.s.....
