in the small town of avigliana, torino, paolo pettigiani has captured colorful scenes from his hometown that sharply differ from the traditional italian landscapes we’re accustomed to. that’s because the local photographer has shot the pink and blue hued series using an infrared filter on his camera, creating a candy-colored photographic collection of the snow-capped site.

 

the photographic technique allows viewers into a world unseen, as eyes cannot fully see infrared light. using a camera filter, bright whites, marking areas such as snow and sky, visualize instead as turquoise, whereas darker tones in the frame materialize as cotton-candy pink. the sleepy town’s dreamy panoramas of grassy expanses, mountainous ranges and calm waters look like a surreal suburban vision, almost unreal in its colorful quality.
