Infrared Winter Wonderland

We first shared Maria Netsounski’s gravity-defying portrait series with you, but since she is also a skilled landscape photographer, we had to show you another side of her creative work. The Netherlands-based photographer travels the globe, capturing breathtaking shots of landscapes filled with promise. She takes a familiar environment and transforms it. You’ve never seen Miami like this!

In this series entitled IR, Netsounski snaps shots of tropical hotspots (no pun intended) and, using infrared technology, distorts the colors in a beautiful way. Vivid shades of green and yellow are muted in the photos, while retaining a strong blue tone. What’s left is a striking combination of icy whites and blues. The result is a fairy tale-like winter wonderland.
