Photographer Pierre-Louis Ferrer Shows Viewers The Beauty Of France, Shooting The Country In Infrared
Pierre-Louis Ferrer’s images are as enchanting as they are intriguing, displaying a whole new variation of color in shrubs, grass and trees, as well as famous landmarks. In some of Ferrer’s works, the foliage is an eye-catching canary yellow – a stark contrast to the more normal shades in the remainder of the images. In other works, whole forests glow red, giving the French countryside an otherworldly look.

The 30-year-old Paris-based photographer discovered infrared photography in 2010 while he was in engineering school. Traveling the country, Ferrer shot several miniseries in this medium: “Red Pines”, in the Alps; “Golden Perigord”, in the southwest of France, and his latest, “Invisible Paris”, in the nation’s capital.
Ferrer said: “I really like the fact that I can reveal an alternative reality, which is physically real but that we cannot see with our eyes. I also like the dreamy effect given by this technique, and the importance given to nature thanks to the properties of foliage.”
