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.

In others, iwhole 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.”
